So he decides to get involved in the dangerous business of drug trafficking with his friend and client Reiner (Bardem). Through Reiner Counselor meets Malkina (Diaz), a self centered sociopath who’s also Reiner’s girlfriend, and Westray (Pitt), who partners with Counselor on his first drug deal. Things go horribly wrong and everyone is put in grave danger because of it.
