Breaking Bad

Walter White, a reserved chemistry teacher, learns from a routine visit to the doctor that he has lung cancer and can not live much longer. Instead of succumbing to his tragic fate, he breaks with all conventions and gets on the wrong track - from the brave average citizen Walter mutates into a tricky "drug king". After a devastating cancer diagnosis, chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) thinks about funding his treatment and securing his family in case of his death. Since his puny salary would never be enough for the costs, Walter comes up with a crazy idea. As a chemical expert, he has sufficient knowledge to produce the artificial drug Crystal Meth. Since he has to sell his product on the streets of Albuquerque, he seeks the help of his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who has become a drug addicted petty criminal. While Walter's brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris), a DEA agent, is unaware who the mysterious "Heisenberg" really is, who conquers the market with his excellent meth, Walter is increasingly enjoying his new life. The stuffy and timid teacher is transformed into an unscrupulous drug king and is increasingly becoming a danger to his family.
