The Panama Papers charts the story of the massive data leak that exposed the largest global corruption scandal in history. Journalists around the globe worked at great personal risk to reveal the corrupt power brokers, the uber rich, elected officials, dictators, cartel bosses, athletes, and celebrities using the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca to hide their money. The reports detailed tax evasion, fraud, cronyism, bribery, election meddling, and even murder. But breaking the story was only the beginning, with many of the accused using every tactic imaginable to silence those who exposed them.
