Storyline

Dashing new chief inspector Morey is send to manage the police station of El Príncipe, until then informally run by no-nonsense veteran cop Fran, who privileges his own rules to the Law in order to maintain peace in the drug cartel-ridden quarter. However, Morey is hiding his real identity as a special agent for Spanish Secret Services CNI. His real goal goes far beyond pacifying the neighborhood. Morey is following a lead that connects the presumably corrupted El Príncipe cops with the jihad. The CNI has sent the agent to investigate a network of Islamic terrorists that is recruiting among the youngest in the culture-colliding town of Ceuta, where Muslims and Christians coexist like nowhere else in Spain. Too soon and despite himself, Morey finds himself falling for engaged Muslim teacher Fátima , whom he originally aims to recruit as a confident. Fátima is local drug baron Faruq's younger sister. But Fátima is also decidedly searching for her missing teenage brother Abdu, who Morey ... Written by Plano a Plano

Great show
26 March 2016 | by andrada-costeaSee all my reviews

I just start watching it, and I love it so much. I think it is a great show, and the actors are doing an amazing job. I like that it has a little bit of everything, thriller, action, drama and romance.

Its plot is centered on the love between a Christian policeman from the Spanish mainland and the young Muslim sister of a drug trafficker. Most of the stories are set in the troubled El Príncipe Alfonso neighborhood of Ceuta, near the border with Morocco.

In the troubled neighborhood of El Príncipe, Fran, a veteran police officer, has no doubts about using unorthodox methods to enforce order. This seems to be in danger with the arrival of Morey, a CNI agent, who uses the police station as cover to investigate a suspected police collaboration with a jihadist network. Morey's situation is complicated with the arrival of Fátima, an idealistic Muslim teacher who is looking for her vanished teenage brother, Abdu, while opposing the criminal activities of her other brother, Faruq, one of the biggest drug dealers in the neighborhood. However, Faruq is not the villain of the story. Then everything gets complicated when they become aware of a terrorist gang called Akrab, which blows up young people to terrorize the city. Meanwhile, Morey offers Fátima a chance to go to the peninsula with him, but, as they are about to depart, her brother Abdu returns to Ceuta on a tour bus with a bomb on board. When the police get to know this, they try to talk to him. The bomb does not go off, but Abdu is shot in the head by Morey. This leads into a second season with an impossible love affair between Morey and Fátima
