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 »

Thrilling narco story on an unique setting.
5 August 2018 | by rodrickEleSee all my reviews

This based in true events serie is one of the best production coming from Spain this year. The casting and actors are all at their best, most of them I expect to see again in the coming years due to this success. I have to mention the choice of music which is perfect to create the thrill of the story, it gives the right 80s rock, punk and folk atmosphere and social background.

The serie tells the story of narco trafficking in Galicia (north of Spain) in the 80s and how it changed the economy, society and politics. The serie focuses on the families and clans that went from being cigarettes smugglers to become narcos and the consequences of their decisions.

Watch it if you are looking for a thrilling narco story on an unique setting.
