Drug-related violence in Mexico has claimed tens of thousands of lives in recent years as rival gangs compete for the millions of dollars they can make smuggling drugs across the U.S. border. But the violence and turmoil have also taken a toll on society, especially in northern Mexico where drug cartels are also involved in kidnapping, extortion and other crimes. A new documentary film examines the situation through the eyes of three people with different perspectives. Greg Flakus reports.
