Two-fisted and tough new chief inspector Morey (Alex Gonzalez) is send to Ceuta , on the border with Morocco , to manage the police station of El Príncipe , until then informally run by no-nonsense veteran police officer Fran (Jose Coronado) . His real goal goes far beyond pacifying the neighborhood . Morey is following a clue 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 applicants to become themselves suicide-bombers . Too soon and despite himself , he finds unexpected love in the least suitable person : a drug baron's sister called Fatima (Hiba Abouk) . Fatima is fighting from his job as a teacher for young people away from crime in the neighborhood . But Fátima is also decidedly searching for her missing teenage brother Abdu , who Morey suspects might have been recruited by the jihad . This turns Fátima into a key asset for Morey's investigation, would their hearts not get in the way . The muscular undercover agent Morey has his counterpoint in the seductive drug dealer Faruq (Ruben Cortada) who controls the drug trafficking in Ceuta . Meanwhile , Fatima is engaged to marry a wealthy and good-looking young named Khaled (Stany Coppet) who has dark secrets .
Exciting series formed by 2 seasons , it is filled with thrills , noisy action , love stories , twists and turns . Although there are also nudism with strong love scenes , bad-mouthed language , profanities and violence . The series gives an adequate description of the city of Ceuta , and especially its slum called ¨El Principe¨ where Muslims and Christians coexist like nowhere else in Spain and there takes place a culture-colliding among citizens of diverse religions . The flick revolves around the conflict between two lovers , when the starring , Morey , finds himself falling for engaged Muslim teacher Fátima , whom he originally aims to recruit as a confident . This series seems obsessed in finding the brightest color in each frame , being compellingly photographed by Federico Ribes . There are spectacular aerial images of the neighborhood El Principe . The rest is provided by the digital post-production, since the complications of filming in a so difficult place , and in order to simplify the production design and to affordable costs , the decision to recreate part of the neighborhood on a set located in Madrid and while the second season was partially shot in La Valletta , Malta . Stargate Studios, responsible for box office shows like The Walking Dead , Pan Am or Revenge , realized the backgrounds that have been made through the overprint system on Chroma and by means of C.G.I . A team of Stargate Studios traveled to Ceuta to record all scenarios at 360 °. Thanks to its technology , they made the characters walk , moving or still patrolling Ceuta , in fact , most part was shot in a study of Madrid with nothing behind them and as the chromas not creak much . Thus , this fiction wins international attraction without losing the Spanish identity , including its traditional neighborhood tavern . And adding great special effects by expert veteran Reyes Abades .
The cast is pretty well , it has the gallery of characters chosen to connect with the complicity of different sectors of the public . Nice acting by Alex Gonzalez as dashing undercover agent Morey who is hiding his real identity as a special cop for Spanish Secret Services CNI to investigate a possible police collaboration with a terrorist cell and following leads about Ceuti Jihad . Mediocre performance from Hiba Abouk as Fátima , she is local drug baron Faruq's younger sister and falls in love for Morey . In second season appears familiar faces as Jesús Castro of ¨El Niño¨ as a cousin of Ben Barek family and to join the drug trafficking ring . And Nerea Barros of ¨La Isla Minima¨ as a secret agent who joins Morey squad . And cameos of Tito Valverde and Juanjo Artero , both of whom protagonists in mythic series : ¨El Comisario¨. Special mention for veteran Jose Coronado as a cop who privileges his own rules to the Law in order to maintain peace in the drug cartel-ridden quarter . Rating : 7 , entertaining and interesting series , being well written and originally created by Cesar Benítez and Aitor Gabilondo . Better than average . Well worth watching
