Dangerous Cargo

Dangerous Cargo

2 Episodes

Fasten your seatbelts for a pair of white-knuckle road trips through treacherous terrain. Henri-Georges Clouzot set a new standard for screen suspense with his nonstop nerve-shredder THE WAGES OF FEAR, in which a quartet of desperate men face danger at every turn when they sign on to drive trucks loaded with nitroglycerin through the mountains. More than sixty years later, Ognjen Glavonić brings us an equally stress-inducing ride through the war-torn Balkans of the late 1990s in THE LOAD, about a driver hired to transport mysterious cargo from Kosovo to Belgrade who gradually comes to realize the horrifying ramifications of his mission.
