Courier-X has been shrouded in secrecy due to its highly political and controversial subject matter; specifically for blaming the White House Administration for intentionally shooting down Flight TWA 800 along with the most unanswered question of all…why.
Udo Kier plays a former member of the East German Police-The Stasi- in a multi-layered story covering the events of Flight TWA 800, a blackmail attempt on the CIA after Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Gary Webb, released his on-line article, Dark Alliance, and a clever cat-and-mouse game between a Manhattan crime boss and a smuggler of black market merchandise.
