Premise[edit]

Sito Miñanco, a fisherman who is skilled in speedboat handling, starts to work in a tobacco smuggling ring led by Vicente Otero Pérez "Terito", the head of the Galician clans of the Ría de Arousa. Miñanco then starts his own ring alongside two friends. The different clans consider starting to traffic hashish, but Terito is against smuggling illegal drugs. Later, on a trip to Panama to launder money, Sito contacts traffickers who want to introduce cocaine into Europe through Galicia.
