Afghanistan's opium trade is worth $65 billion worldwide and accounts for half of Afghanistan's economy. Author and journalist Fariba Nawa went undercover to find out about a secret war that involves drug traffickers, child opium brides and corrupt officials.
Nawa addresses these questions: How is the Afghan drug trade affecting the people, and specifically, the women of Afghanistan? What are the United States and NATO doing about it? And what does the future hold for Afghanistan as a narco-state?
