Imagine a world where Nicholas Cage plays himself and is recruited by the CIA to spy on a drug kingpin, while writing a screenplay with him. And the CIA are also helping to write the screenplay.

We look at the culture ministries who supported the production, and the strange and complex origins of this unique (but not so unique) story.
