This drama features Valentin Trujillo as Damian Corona, the son of a married couple who once ran a "palenque" (illegal cock-fight arena) in their small town in Texas near the Mexican border. Damian's parents were killed, and he is out to get the murderers. Because two of the killers are already in Brownsville prison before he has a chance to reach them, Damian changes his plans. He puts aside the hunt for the remaining killer at large and gets himself thrown in jail. Once there, he experiences the usual horrors of prison life, and bides his time waiting for the opportune moment to avenge his parents' death.
