Synopsis: Narcopolis is a futuristic thriller set in the near future where all classes of drugs have been legalized. Frank Grieves is a 'Dreck', a roaming narc responsible for keeping the black market dealers off the streets and the licenced drugs companies rich. When he discovers a rogue substance in an unidentified corpse, evidence suggests that Ambro, the most powerful drug manufacturer of all, are conducting secret tests on an experimental narcotic. Grieves discovers a second victim - this time alive - but she disappears and he is suddenly taken off the case by his superiors. As his options drain away, it's clear that legalization has come at a heavy price. Is it too late to save the city?

'... the opponents of drug legalisation

'were growing more powerful...

'... violence perpetrated by employees...

'How do you respond to the accusation

that you gave the order...?

'Here we go - innovator,

a corporate genius, a spiritual leader,

'which brings us neatly back to why. '

'Why what?'

'Why does everyone trust you?

'The personal guarantee? Come off it.

'I mean, seriously, to really guarantee

the safety of every single Ambro product,

'you've got to be high

about 90% of the week.

'Now, I know you're a recluse and all that,

but come on. '

'Do you really want to know

why people trust me, Martin?'

'That's why we're here. '

'My parents where drug addicts.

'As soon as I could walk

I had to step over needles,

'crack pipes.

'Sleeping, drooling,

emaciated, stinking bodies

'just to find something to eat.

'As a child, I became very familiar

with hospital waiting rooms...

'... while doctors tried to flush out

my parents' systems after OD'ing.

'I had to scrounge money,

bail money, dealer money...

'... protection money off my neighbours.

'And then one day, it was all over.

'I found myself staring at two people

'with their guts spilling out

onto the threadbare carpet,

'because my parents had skanked

their dealer one time too many.

'I made a promise that day,

I made a promise to myself.

'To change a system...

'... that took two decent people

and turned them into cockroaches.

'And I've kept that promise ever since.

'Today, Ambro products are legal.

'They are affordable and they are safe. '

'People have made their choice, Martin.

'You can't change history. '

"'You can't change history,"

'from the lips of the Ambro Company's

enigmatic founder Todd Ambro,

'right here live and exclusive

and in person

'in our studio on the 25th anniversary

of drug legalisation.

'Todd Ambro, thank you. '

'What a pleasure it's been, Martin.

Thank you. '

'What are you waiting for?'

- Well?

- 'Shush, shush. '

Rushing will only make me mess it up.

OK, I'm there.

Come on, you have to move faster.

'This is my whole life

passing before me. '

A little respect, please.

Your whole life?

You're forgetting something.

Apart from you, Eva, of course.

'What's the matter?'

I know this is the right thing,

but that doesn't stop it feeling wrong.

'Don't think about that.

Just do what we planned. '

- 'Talk to me. Tell me what's happening. '

- It's happening.

- You're a genius!

- 'Was. '

- No one's gonna know now.

- 'I'll know. '

You've got company.

- 'You need to get out of there. '

- No, it's not completed.

There are three of them.

OK. There's an emergency exit

in the clearance chamber.

'I can try and buy you some time. '

- I have to finish this.

- No, you need to get out of there.


Don't move!

Step away from the door.

Put your hands above your head!

- Don't fucking move!

- What are you doing? This isn't stable.

Where I'm going, it doesn't need to be.

'This was never the plan! Don't do it!'

It's gone.


- All of it?

- No, not all of it.

Eva... I love you.


'165 status update.

165 status... '

I really loved her.

- Yeah, that's what it looks like.

- F*ck you!

She was my baby. My skin.

Hey! What about me?

You can't just leave me like this.

I really need something, brother.

I'm freaking out here.

I'm... ditching, man.

Please! Anything! Please!

Then try room service.

F*ck you! You motherfucker!

We've been promised

an upgrade now that Ambro owns this site.

Ambro owns this place?

God knows why anyone

would wanna own this shithole.

The lights are on a timer.
