The original tells the story of two American teenagers hired by the Mexican cartel as assassins. At first glance, Gabriel Cardona seems like an exemplary teenager - he plays sports, is smart, handsome and charismatic. But the guy comes from Laredo, Texas, where poverty is rampant. Soon, Gabriel changes its promising future to the temptation to become part of a drug cartel linked to the Mexican military command. Boyfriend Bart and a few other comrades also agree to work for the cartel and smuggle drugs in order to one day attract the attention of the organization's bosses.
At the same time, a Mexican-born detective Robert Garcia is trying to provide for his own family. When he begins to persecute the guys and leaders of the drug cartel, he comes face to face with the consequences of a war that seems to never end ...
