Los Angeles, 1983: a storm is coming and its name is cocaine.

Following an ensemble cast of characters set on an intense collision course, Snowfall explores the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and the major impact it had on American society and culture. Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) is a young street entrepreneur on a quest for success, whilst Gustavo Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) is a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle in a Mexican crime family. Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios) is the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord, and Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) is a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras.
