“Running With The Devil” draws on Jason Cabell’s real-life USA Navy Seal experiences assigned to work with the DEA in Colombia’s coca drug fields.
When a cocaine shipment is compromised to the dismay of the Cartel’s CEO/ leader, The Boss (Barry Pepper), the Boss orders his most trusted Cook (Nicolas Cage) and another master drug trafficker, The Man (Laurence Fishburne) on a dangerous journey to audit the company’s supply chain.
We follow the cocaine from its origins as a coca plant in Colombia, where a hardworking family-man, The Farmer (Clifton Collins Jr.), and his wife and children must deliver the cocaine paste out of the treacherous mountainous jungles of Colombia on its first stop in a long journey north.
The Cook and the Man, with the help of The Executioner (Cole Hauser), navigate the shipment across international borders, through a spectrum of federales, gangsters, refiners, couriers into Canada - to the final point of purchase. This fast-paced adventure is a dangerous journey of life and death, as the Agent in Charge (Leslie Bibb) along with her Number One (Peter Facinelli) dog the Cartel’s every turn, and a compromised Snitch (Adam Goldberg) threatens to destroy internal secrets… infuriating the Boss.
