The Hydra

THE HYDRA is about the rise of ecstasy and other synthetic drugs in Europe after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s. Using archival footage, interviews, and meticulous recreations — the film tells the extraordinary covert operation lead by General Vladimir Tymoshenko with SBU (formerly KGB) in coordination with the DEA and other European law enforcement agencies to track down and end ecstasy manufacturers and rogue operators originating from Ukraine. With unprecedented access to the SBU and other clandestine European agencies – the story of the Hydra can finally be told from the point of view of the investigators, drug-kingpins, and all the players involved in the case. The Hydra is a post-Cold War thriller and modern day parable about international cooperation to tackle multinational problems in a fragile Europe.
