Mark Greening has the easy life as a magician in Bali Β… until he finds out he's going to be a dad. Needing cash for his new responsibilities, he smuggles a kilo of hash from Nepal inside pellets he swallows Β— which proves to be easy for this magician to perfect. He's saved more than $80,000 through his scheme and decides to make another (doomed) trip to Nepal. He breaks the golden rule to never body-pack hash, and enhanced airport security for the soccer World Cup in Tokyo gets him busted.
