Embedded with fiery action and intense emotions, this crime thriller is set between Morocco, southern Spain and the British enclave of Gibraltar, a major Euro-African conduit for the drugs trade. Jesus (Luis Tosar) is a driven cop who has spent years failing to deliver to his bosses a major drugs haul. While Jesus and sidekick Eva (Barbara Lennie) pursue the assailants they end up with nothing but 3,000 kilos of frozen hake, with no trace of the cocaine they seek.
El Nino himself (‘the Kid’, Jesus Castro) and his buddy El Compi (‘the Buddy,’ Jesus Carroza) work the fishing boats and dream of a better life. El Nino’s skill at piloting his jet ski at breakneck speed across the Strait of Gibraltar gets the boys a job as runners for Rachid (Moussa Maaskri).
Unbeknownst to the kids, the crossing is a decoy mission, and El Nino decides to set up business independently, trafficking hashish rather than coke. Meanwhile a mysterious, malevolent stereotype in a white suit, known only as ‘El Ingles’ (‘The Englishman’) ends up becoming Jesus’s ultimate target. The two strands pull satisfyingly together for a thrilling finale. Will Jesus succeed in bringing down the powerful drug nexus?
