The plot focuses on telling all the points of view of Galician drug trafficking over several decades. The series begins in the 80s in Galicia where, after the dictatorship of Franco and the fishing crisis, many Galician fishermen are full of debt and without a job. The economic scarcity of the fishing villages leads to the desperation of the inhabitants. Faced with this precarious situation, those who trafficked in tobacco will take advantage of the situation to try to expand their business to a more dangerous one: drugs. In this way, it will move on to the drug trafficking business on the Galician coast, where those in charge of trafficking in the area will contact the leaders of the Colombian cartels to traffic in a more significant substance with greater expansion during the decade 80: cocaine. With the expansion of the business, 80% of the European drug will land on Galician beaches.

Did You Know?


The novel the series is based on was seized by court order on February 2018, only to shoot up on Amazon's best-sellers list before the seizure was enforced. Antena 3 took advantage of the controversy to set an early premiere, since the series was not affected by the order, which eventually turned into the full series release. The seizure order was lifted in June 2018, more than a month after the series finale aired. See more »


The series often shows TV broadcasts in black and white despite beginning in 1981, years after the Spanish public broadcasting company switched completely to color in 1977. However, it is possible that all the TVs in the series just happen to be old models that cannot show color. See more »

User Reviews

Outstanding testimonial Spanish fiction
16 February 2019 | by manugwSee all my reviews

When a tobacco smuggling cartel in Galicia, Spain Coast turn to drug trafficking with the support of Colombian Cartel suppliers, things begin to taste sour in the Galician society. A lone policy sergeant go in a crusade against them and all the corruption political system that turns a blind eye. Based on true events. It is very well crafted with lots of action suspense and vibrant character development. Gripping, kept me glued to my TV set.
