Plot[edit]

In the middle of a police procedure, Alejandro Falco is shot in the head and left in a coma. He wakes up 23 years later to discover that his wife married another man and his daughter is now a woman. The world around Falco has changed. He has no idea how the internet works, he has never had a mobile phone and the rock n 'roll of his days has become "classic". He manages to recover his old job and faces police cases using his "old techniques". Falco has not lost his detective techniques or his irreverence and will have to learn to work with his new partner, to accept his daughter's boyfriend and even work with his former wife’s new husband, who, to Falco’s misfortune, will prove to be a great professional ally. Both Falco and his team will have difficulty adapting to each other as he tries to perform his job while trying to figure out what happened that night, 23 years ago.
