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

Starts well but fizzles and crashes
14 April 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Morey, a member of the secret service in Spain, is sent to a dangerous neighborhood in Ceuta, a Spanish city in the North of Africa, to investigate the possibility of the existence of a jihadist cell in the commissary. Pretty soon he will become involved in a relationship with the sister of one of the two drug lords of the place, a Muslim woman.

What starts as a mystery series, with a secret agent trying to discover who may or may not have connections with the 'terrorists' pretty soon turns into a soap opera, all melodrama, with one of the most inane love stories ever. The stupidity of the characters is rampant and the plot seems to be challenging itself with piling stupid plot twists one on top of the other, till we won't care much about what is happening on the screen.

On top of that, the depiction of the neighborhood and of Muslims is quite simplistic, and having all characters resort to shouting and pulling guns reeks. And, if that was not enough, there is an underlying current of machismo all through the proceedings (whatever how many 'strong' women are supposed to be in the series; all of them undone by love, by the way).

Poor "El Príncipe" had a good idea but decided that depth was not for it and that a shallow love story would suffice. It doesn't.
