Written in Chile, this story is about a failed drug operation that causes a frenzied pursuit of four men by the mafia and federal authorities, forcing them to start a desperate escape plan through the Chilean territory.
Not much of a Spanish TV watcher, especially not soaps, but stumbled on this while checking out OnDemand on HBO one night and now I'm completely addicted. It's like watching the Latin Sopranos, or better a combination of Sopranos and the Professional in Spanish. It's action packed and the scenes related to the family are well done. There are a few recognizable actors but all new for me. Love the slightly foreign feel, since I read it's filmed in Mexico, but not so much you don't believe it's real. The violence is brutal but not entirely gory and the connections between characters keeps you hooked. I'm 41 years old and I've always found Latin TV to be silly, not real enough but they figured this one out nicely. Highly Recommended!
