Reporter Seyi Rhodes and director Matt Haan travel to Guatemala City where bus drivers are being terrorized and murdered by criminal gangs in a campaign of extortion.

One bus driver is being murdered every other day. Extortion is so profitable that the gangs do not stop at the bus companies. Practically every business in the city is a potential earner. The team investigates how these gangs are earning millions of pounds while gripping the city in a state of perpetual fear.
