June 2016, Far North, New Zealand. The job seemed simple: leave Auckland, pick up 500kg of meth from Ninety-Mile Beach and drive it back south, keeping a low profile. How hard could that be? This is the true story of one of New Zealand's biggest ever drugs bust, and how those responsible almost got away with half a tonne of crystal meth. Oh, and half a billion dollars. But thanks to the sleuthing skills of Ahipara's good-hearted locals - and a series of unbelievable faux-pas by the drug-smugglers - police managed to catch the crims. They say fact is stranger than fiction, and in this case it is. Stranger, and funnier. It's a story like no other. This is Far North.
