Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

The subjects broached by this fast-paced film with lurid, emotive, or just plain tabloid-level events involve both drugs and the actions of the Civil Guard, or Spanish national police. Two young men have been trapped into selling drugs to support their cocaine habit, the father of one is a Civil Guard and the father of other, a Basque separatist. Even though the young addicts successfully go cold turkey, the prostitute they live with gets them back into the habit again and this time, the results are much more serious.
