In order to bring the white sugar from Colombia to Mexico, smugglers have been increasing their level of sophistication, going as far as using home-made submarines to get the goods there.

Worth more than $60 million on the streets of Miami or Washington, many see the risks and discomforts as worth it. Others, like former submarine captain Gustavo Alonso, had no choice. A fascinating look into a very-short career-path I'm not interested in taking.
