The series tells the story of a single drug company, which later became the cause of the worst drug epidemic in the United States in American history. The epidemic, then, caused a large number of deaths in America. Richard Sackler developed a new painkiller and launched it. A rural doctor came across this new powerful painkiller and a coal miner is determined to plan her future. However, there was a black market for the pills and a DEA Agent learned about it and federal prosecutors decided to open the file into OxyContin.

There is a lot of demand for OxyContin in the market but it faces a threat. Prude’s vast influence reaches the market, Bridget steps outside her DEA authority, and the investigation of OxyContin begins. Doctor Finnix starts examining OxyContin and Bridget realizes that the drug is impacting the communities and the whole nation. Rick and Randy investigate the case.
