A stylish, 70's-period crime thriller inspired by true events, The Connection tells the story of real-life Marseille magistrate Pierre Michel and his relentless crusade to dismantle the most notorious drug smuggling operation in history: the French Connection.
In his crosshairs is charismatic and wealthy kingpin, Gatean “Tany” Zampa, who runs the largest underground heroin trade into the States. Though the fearless and tenacious Michel, aided by a task force of elite cops, will stop at nothing - including boldly orchestrated drug raids, devastating arrests, and exacting interrogations – to ensure the crime ring's demise, Zampa's "La French" always seems one step ahead.
As La French mounts its retaliation, Michel will be forced to make the most difficult decision of his life: to continue waging his war, or ensure his family's safety, before it's too late.
THE TIMES’ KATE MUIR SAYS: “A gripping and stylish French thriller set among mafia mobsters in Marseilles.”
