Narated by the late, great Paul Newman, Flowers of Darkness is an unflinching, no-nonsense look at the opium trade - where it happens, how it is transported, and it's ultimate effects on the world community. With footage direct from the fields of Afghanistan to the streets of the ghetto, the reach and power of the poppy was as powerful in the early 1970's when this film was made, as it is now, with the comeback of the Taliban fueled by the bumper opium crop of 2007.
