While Fernando Barrientos is looking for the people responsible for his family’s tragedy, he tries to serve as Undersecretary of the Interior. But President Echeverría has no patience and takes advantage of the remnants of the students’ discontent to strike a new blow and finish off his political enemies.
Time advances in Echeverría’s six year term and Barrientos seems to manage his pain and consolidate his position within the Cabinet. However, a sudden betrayal makes him question his place in the system. Meanwhile, as a result of the State’s repression, the “Liga Comunista 23 de Septiembre”, an urban guerrilla group, emerges, threatening national security.
Barrientos sees an opportunity to manipulate this threat to his advantage. But violence gets out of control and Echeverría designates the army to fight the guerrilla. General Federico Amaya, an old and powerful enemy of Barrientos, will lead this military effort.
Both Barrientos and General Amaya seek to dismantle the communist league, but their fight becomes a personal war. Repression escalates and Barrientos tries to take control of the situation, but Amaya’s cold blood nullifies his effort.
Barrientos seems to have lost everything. However, thanks to his relationship with the CIA, he understands a new way to maintain power: by controlling the narco-state. Lucio Cabañas and his guerrilla stir up Guerrero, endangering Barriento’s plans. And when Amaya discovers his intentions, he will do everything in his power to take away the business from Barrientos, unleashing a battle whose outcome will surprise both men.
We get closer to the end of Echeverria’s six year term amid the threat of a historic economic crisis. The race for the presidential succession begins and Barrientos seems to be on the right side. However, President Echeverrías agenda cancels any possibility for Barrientos, who will have to do whatever it takes to eliminate the president’s plans and become the key player in the country’s political and criminal underworld.
