Nobody wants to end up as a rat for the DEA, but David's seemingly cavalier approach to the drug trade has landed him in it. Together with his ironically angelic business partner and best friend Rene, he attempts to navigate a world far more dangerous than even he realizes. Barely older than teenagers themselves, the overconfident pair become entrenched with the Czech/Vietnamese meth syndicate while David is coerced into betraying Rene to the rogue cop, Major Jan Blažek. With both the mafia and police after him, David is forced to team up with Blažek's unwitting partner Petra, fresh off an extended maternity leave and eager to prove herself to her politically ambitious police officer husband. As Petra and David become more deeply entangled in the web that controls the gateway for meth to pour into Europe, the lines between order and anarchy collapse completely. Based on true stories and made in collaboration with the National Anti-Drug Centre of the Czech Republic (DEA), Rats was created and written by talented young Czech screenwriter Miro Šifra (Rédl) and directed by multi award-winning Viktor Tauš (Vodnik, Clownwise, Dom) of Heaven's Gate and Matěj Chlupáček (Terapie) of Barletta Productions in association with Czech TV and MD4.
