Cocaine, once a drug exclusively for the rich and famous is now the most popular class A drug in Britain. More than 1.2 million people took it in the UK last year. This film follows three users on nights out on coke and uses cutting edge computer graphics to journey inside their bodies and brains to find out how the drug creates its highs and its lows. For some cocaine is the ideal addition to a night out, but for others taking cocaine became a life changing event: we meet the young man that needed a pacemaker fitted at just 17 after cocaine gave him a heart attack and we’ll follow a patient as they undergo surgery to repair their nose, torn apart by too many lines of coke. We’ll access Britain’s leading experts to find out the truth behind cocaine’s controversial reputation. Cocaine the perfect pick me up or a killer class A, this is the inside story of how cocaine works.
