The incredible true story of the rise and reign of Pablo Escobar, the most wanted criminal in history, told by the one man who was with him every step of the way - his brother Roberto.
Roberto Escobar operated for over fifteen years as the accountant for Pablo Escobar's Medellin drug cartel. After handing himself into the Colombian authorities in 1992, he was placed in a maximum security prison, until his release in 2004. He now lives on a farm in rural Colombia.
