Los Angeles, 1938. LAPD detective Tiago Vega and his partner, Lewis Michener, investigate a murder. While at City Hall, Tiago's activist brother Raul Vega battles with the fiery Councilman Charlton Townsend over the construction of California's first freeway.

Sensing danger, Tiago's mother Maria pleads with Santa Muerte to protect her family as the rising tensions in the city threaten to explode.

At the beginning sequence, young Tiago is listening to a record player to La Llorona, a popular Mexican folk song, and even says it is his favorite. Since the episode is set in the late 1920's and 1930's, and although the song was composed in 1850, the particular version that Tiago is listening to is the one sung by Chavela Vargas (the trademark tone of Vargas' voice is very clear), created in 1961.
