Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A loyal Mexican drug runner inherits the lucrative business only to find his empire crumbling around him when a lucrative deal goes bad in this tale of crime and betrayal from filmmaker Jose Reyes Bencomo. Mexican drug lord Sr. Acosta (Joe Estevez) has always treated Rafael (Jorge Cordova) as a son, and in turn Rafael has always treated Sr. Acosta's reckless biological son Carlos (Nico Guilak) like a brother. When Sr. Acosta bestows his empire upon Rafael with the understanding that Rafael will do his best to keep Carlos out of trouble, it appears as if Rafael is set for life. The situation takes a turn for the worse, however, when Rafael goes against Sr. Acosta's wishes by allowing Carlos to broker a high-profile drug deal. When the deal goes south and Carlos is hunted by the authorities for a brutal double homicide, the paranoid Rafael attempts to stonewall police by relocating the operation and purging his empire of suspected traitors with a little help from feared assassin Chupacabra (Jorge Soriano).
