Through shocking self-surveillance documentation we are swept into a pro-paranoia docutective with a perpetrated Arend, a Champion Leaque consumer, a Lawyer and Drugs scientists. Dutch gentlemen that relate 24/7 to the illegal drug Cocaine. They re-visit a well kept secret, the Dutch Cocaine Factory (the Netherlands until 1945 the best and biggest Cocaine produceing country in the world. An attempt for A Fair Trade with the 'cover up' War on Drugs? Arend seeks 'Solutions', for the quality of the cocaine provided today seems to be an automatic detox and if legal, production would not extend the coffee price. The power of the images, the structure of the film and the implausibility of the events are reminiscent of fiction, but performance artist Jeanette Groenendaal's documentary debut tells the truth and nothing but the truth.
