What’s Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami About?
Augusto aka “Willy” Falcon and Salvador aka “Sal” Magluto were two immigrants from Cuba who were allowed to live out their Scarface dreams in real life. Willy and Sal were suspected of smuggling almost 75 tonnes of cocaine into the United States until they were finally apprehended and indicted in the 1980s, which is a decade specified by cocaine and neon-colored apparel.
The smuggler duo was known as “Los Muchachos” in the streets of Miami. They gained popular favor by living a Robin Hood-like lifestyle and sharing some of their $2 billion wealth with those who were less fortunate. This, integrated with their own cunning, allowed them to elude federal authorities for more than two decades.
Here’s the Trailer!
The Kings of Miami’s new trailer shows the pair’s meteoric rise, including how they became the local celebrities of Miami and even won a few prizes on the powerboat racing circuit. The video also delves into the more shady aspects of Sal and Willy’s organization, as well as a long hunt between the authorities and Los Muchachos.
