Based on a true story, Most Wanted follows ex heroin addict, Daniel Léger, as he becomes entangled in a drug deal gone wrong. When the deal goes sour, Daniel gets thrown into a Thai prison and slapped with a 100-year prison sentence. While he tries to survive his Bangkok incarceration, the news of his conviction captures the attention of Globe and Mail journalist Victor Malarek, who resolves to go after the shady undercover cops responsible for wrongly accusing Daniel.
