    • Synopsis
    • This is the story of Nico, a 45 years old former narcotics police officer. An expert in Martial Arts,
      he has a rugged look, tattoos, black t-shirts and leather jackets.
      Nobody imagined that behind that tough looking man is hiding one of the best narcotics police
      officers the city ever had.
      A widower and father of a 15 years old daughter named Sol, his life bounces in between raising
      his daughter and organizing his underground fighting match business.
      During his career in the police force he was awarded for his work against drugs and human
      trafficking. But his career ended when he was accused of being responsible for many deaths
      during an undercover operation and he was fired from the special unit.
      The true details of that case were never known; only Internal Affairs have that information.
      Today, he’s training fighters like Egor, a former Kickboxing champion with a dark past, and
      Natasha, a stripper who only fights to make money. Both are inseparable friends.Their goal is to
      win the final fight where honor and lots of money are a stake.
      At this peaceful moment in his life, his former lieutenant arrives at his gym with a rookie named
      Paula, to give Nico the worst news ever: her daughter Sol was kidnapped while she was exiting
      the school.
      Nobody knows who did it, but the Police told him they will find her as soon as possible.
      From that moment, a nightmare began in Nico’s life; he has to find his daughter before it’s too
      late.
      Then he decided to resort to an old snitch he befriended long ago - El Perico- to see if he has
      any information about who’s behind the kidnapping.
      El Perico told him about a hitman called El Cochiloco who’s currently working for the Russian
      Mob and is looking for girls and teens for his boss. The Russian boss is planning on selling the
      girls to a group of Colombians who are about to arrive at the port with a big amount of cocaine.
      Nico goes to the Lieutenant to tell what’s about to happen and asks to look for the Russians; the
      Lieutenant gives Nico a resounding no because there’s no evidence against them. Nico argues
      with him and they almost got into a fist-fight.
      Paula, the rookie, tells Nico she’ll keep him up to date on the case. Nico laughs and tells her
      when they find his daughter she’ll be dead.
      Then, together with Egor and Natasha, Nico prepares a plan to find his daughter before she’ll be
      sold or killed.
      Paula finds out her unit is corrupt, letting the Russian mob work unrestricted in the city. She
      goes straight to tell Nico there will be no help from her Police unit since they are all bought.
      From that moment, Nico and Paula, without abiding by any rules, join forces into a race against
      time where revenge, betrayal and power are playing without law till the end.
