From the Producer of ‘Searching for Sugarman’, The Legend of Shorty goes after the leader of the biggest drugs cartel in history.
Spurred on by specially composed songs by Jackson Scott, and Tyrone Power as Zorro, the filmmakers set out to find “EL CHAPO” (Shorty). To some, he is a revolutionary hero and a latter-day Robin Hood, the powerful peasant who looks after his people. To others, he is Public Enemy No.1, the first since Al Capone. He has been on the run for over a decade from the US and Mexican governments. In the middle over 80,000 Mexicans have been murdered
The film takes us into a world few outsiders have ever been, knocking on the door of the most wanted man in the world.
