An Intelligence Agent is sent to El Principe, on the border with Morocco, to investigate a possible police collaboration with a terrorist cell but finds unexpected love in the least suitable person: a drug baron's sister.
This is a Telenovela, pure and simple, complete with overacting, continuous drama and its own brand of silliness and improbabilities. The true star of the show is the stunning landscape of Galicia, especially the coastline. The idea is not an original one as something similar was produced for English TV a while back, using the same concept of a crime boss who develops Alzheimers and the fight for his crown. I rated it as a 5/10, because despite its shortcomings, it does tend to keep the viewer engaged, if only to see the next crisis unfolding. There appears to be a second season in the offing, and I think it will have appeal to a select target audience. It will not however, have wider global appeal as the story line is not that outstanding. Watchable but don't take it too seriously!
