Since the days of Kurt Cobain and grunge music, Seattle has been nicknamed Junkietown. The city's liberal laws and high demand for drugs is attracting gangsters and dealers looking to get rich. From the competitive crack business in Belltown to fashionable Molly users on the electronic dance music scene, this film explores the highs and lows of Seattle's drug business. Meet “Gator,” who has built up a reputation as the man with the best quality crack; and Ozu, the gourmet of crack cooking.
