On March 19, 2013, a private plane is about to take off from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, to Saint Tropez, when police unexpectedly arrive to search the aircraft. On board, they find 700 kilos of cocaine, a cargo worth more than 200 million euros. It's one of the biggest drug bust in history. The 4 French crew members are arrested, convicted and jailed.
In France, where the "Air Cocaine" affair makes the headlines, the justice system carries out an investigation and discovers elements that lift the veil on many shady areas of the case.
