1 A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES Let's go! Don't stop! Sir! - This is an abuse of power! - Cowards! Are you okay? Those idiots are hitting us! The police are hitting us! Go! - Let's go.
- Wait! Stop! Are you okay? I don't know.
How do I look? - They're only scratches.
- They hurt a lot.
You'll heal soon.
Calm down.
Is that Japanese philosophy or what? Why did they hit you? I don't know, Miguel.
Those people don't need an excuse.
- They're all bad eggs.
- You seem to know them very well.
Believe it or not, those are the same people that kidnap, torture and almost always kill journalists.
Come, I'll drive you home.
Why are you leaving? Stay a couple more days! - I have to go to Mexico City.
- Mexico City my foot.
- You have nothing to do there.
- I do.
- Unfinished business.
- You don't.
Yes, I do.
Guys! What? We ran out of snow.
What do we do? What do you mean? Chisca brought a lot.
Well, we're out, man! No problem, I can get some more.
- Can you come with me? - That's my friend! - To the end of the world.
- Thanks.
Don't let the party die! Oh, no.
Hey, don't go and hide somewhere! MEXICO CITY, MEXICO I'm out now.
It got real in there.
I'll tell you later.
I'm fine.
- Hold on! - I'll call you later.
Any problem, officer? None at all.
Let them go.
Good evening, miss.
- Let go of me.
- Sorry, but you can't come in here.
What? What are you talking about? I do whatever I want.
- Those are the orders.
- Who gave those orders? I'm the boss's granddaughter.
Since when I can't come in here? Since your brother specifically told us not to let you inside.
Miguel can't tell me what to do or how to do it, get it? You want to mess with me? - No, miss.
- You want to mess with me? Please don't get me in any troub What is wrong with you? With me? I didn't do anything! You were the one What are you saying? Don't you yell at me.
You saw how he took advantage of me, didn't you? You don't want me to tell Miguel, do you? Then leave me alone.
Where did you get that, Chisca? Oh, dear, you just hang out with me.
I love it.
Come in, Miguel.
Hey, play along, all right? I don't want to worry my wife.
- Hello.
- Hi.
I'm Ana.
- Miguel.
- Hi, honey.
How are you? - What happened? - Hello there! - What? - What happened? - No, nothing.
- What do you mean? I'm fine, I swear.
Hey, I ran into Miguel on my way out of the office.
- And then? - Well, nothing.
We went to some bar downtown to grab some beer and started reminiscing about old times.
Chatting about childhood and, well, he had to leave, and when I was alone, some guys came closer and tried to mug me, just Well, he noticed just in time and helped me fight back.
You should have seen him, the way he left those guys.
I got a couple of blows, but I'm all right.
- Thank you, then! - No, it's nothing.
Hey, I'm sorry for asking, but can you hold Emilia for a bit? Just a second, while I go fetch the first aid kit.
- Yes, sure.
- Yes? Thank you, sorry about that.
No, it won't be necessary, Ana.
I can go wash my face and that's it.
I'll put some ice on my face and done.
There's nothing wrong, all right? - No, dear.
I'll go with you and help you.
- No.
Don't bother Miguel.
- No, the girl is crying.
- No, it's just a minute alone.
- Look, she's happy.
- All right.
Everything you told me about having a baby with me was it true? I've never been more serious.
- I love you.
- You, too.
Honey? What are you doing? I want to treasure that smile forever.
Excuse me.
The baby is asleep.
- For real? - Yes.
Well, I think we should call him over more often to make the kid fall asleep.
Oh, sure! You're hired.
I'll leave you alone, okay? Okay, honey.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
- No problem.
You look awful.
Well, I'll take that as a compliment.
Would you let me fix you? No, there's no need.
Ana gave me some painkillers.
- It's fine.
- Taking meds after you're already ill Wait! it's like digging for a well when you're already thirsty.
Let's see.
This is a thousand-year-old technique called Shiatsu.
There we go.
All right, hang on.
Hey, I think it's less painful.
Well, thanks a lot.
And also, thank you for getting me out of that place.
We're friends.
Are we, though? Do you doubt it? Why were you at that party? Business.
You're doing business with them? Do you know who Carlos Duarte is? He's corrupt.
He's dangerous.
I've tried to move against him, but I don't have proof.
But I swear by my sister's memory, I will find some.
What's wrong? Should I bring you some tea? I think that'd be good, in a bit.
- Why are you so stubborn? - Grandpa! What's up? - What's wrong? Why are you ill? - It's nothing.
I just have a stomachache, that's all.
- Okay.
- It's fine.
I'm fine.
- We need to call the doctor.
- No! Don't call anybody.
I'm fine.
- It's not that bad.
- It may be a good idea.
I'm telling you no, woman! I'm fine, there's nothing wrong with me, please.
No, it's not fine.
Why don't we take him to Mexico City? - What for? - What do you mean? - To get a second opinion! - Stop talking like I'm not here.
Please, enough! There's nothing wrong with me! - Your granddaughter's worried about you.
- Don't you care about your health? Yeah! Well, no, all right? I'm okay! And if I'm going to die, so be it.
I've seen enough.
You can't die, no! - You can't die! - Child.
If I'm going to die, it'll be when my time comes.
I'm not dying sooner or later than that.
It's a cycle.
No! It must already be hard coming back to your country after such a long time.
And now, with your loss I can't even imagine.
Asya was my life.
But now she's gone.
Don't you think you're being too hard on yourself? I mean, there's nothing wrong with you having some time for yourself, for your grieving.
Asya and I will meet again.
In Japan, you learn that death is a part of life.
Hey, Miguel I've been trying to avoid this subject, but I'm not going to anymore.
What do you want to know? My childhood friend has now become a boss of the bosses.
I don't see myself like that.
But if you're wondering if I'll be involved in the business, the answer is yes.
Well, you scare me more every day, Miguel.
Listen to me.
The war against cartels can't be won.
That is a fact.
The gringos know it and use it to gain control over countries like ours.
But it doesn't justify us living amid this bloodshed.
There are more realistic ways.
Yeah? Like what? Are you going to talk about legalization? Imagine all those billions turned into financial deals.
In an enormous legal business.
You're crazy.
Well, I have an idea and I want to try it out.
Are you for real? You think that just because you can manage money better than anyone, you'll change how things are? - Is that what you think? - Why not? Do you think you can change things with your newspaper? Of course I can! Because I'm not making organized crime any more powerful.
I plan to give them a status they haven't know yet.
A kind of respectability that will get them hooked.
And when I do it, I won't only change the course of things in Mexico, but in the whole world.
You're being too naive.
Naive? And you think you can go against the military, the government, the police and organized crime with your newspaper? I don't know.
But at least I'll give it a try.
Only time will tell who is right.
Adri, I'm having a really bad trip.
Catch you later.
ARE YOU HOME? Yeah, have fun.
Valentín Soria.
- Same thing as the lady, please.
- What's up? You startled me.
How is your granny? Fine.
She's quite old, but strong as an oak.
That's why you're strong as well.
Thank you.
Whoa, cowboy! Want to go for a walk? I could use some fresh air.
The air in this city is anything but fresh.
- It's not very safe, either.
- Good thing I have someone to protect me.
Thank you.
Whoa, cowgirl.
Imagine that old lady calling me a spinster.
Miguel Garza, if what you're looking for is crossing the line with me, all you had to do was take me to the drive-in.
Anybody who knows me knows that mixing two of my favorite passions, like cars and movies, is my weakness.
No, love is not for me.
Flat out? I fell in love once.
It won't happen again.
What did that woman do to hurt you so bad? My wife recently passed away.
I'm sorry, I didn't know.
You couldn't have known.
How, what happened to her? It was a few days ago.
She suffered from an incurable disease and she committed suicide.
And all of this happened in Japan or No, okay, please forgive me.
I swear I don't mean to pry.
I'm not some nosy woman, but I really didn't see this coming.
How do you do it, working your rear off, like nothing's happened? Life moves on, though it may seem impossible.
You're such a strong man.
Well, enough, let's change the topic, the last thing I want is getting you down, believe it or not.
I want to cheer you up.
Don't worry.
I don't talk about this, but with you it seems easier.
I think you and I could become good friends.
I think we could.
I heard you last night.
Nightmares again? Don't worry, it's gone now.
What, we're waiting for the kids? Do we have to wait for them to eat breakfast? - I'm hungry.
- They are on their way.
Well, call them.
I'm hungry.
They're coming.
Here they are.
Freshly made flour tortillas, pork rinds with green sauce from the garden.
Your favorite.
- Hey, what's up, son? - I brought it especially for you.
Would you just look at this! How delicious! Is it really from the garden? How nice! I won't offer you a bit because you probably wouldn't want it, right? Delicious.
Oh, darling.
I'm going to miss you so much.
But why are you saying that, Grandpa? Because your sister is going to Madrid to study.
And will be there for a long time.
Thankfully, it's one of the best colleges in the world, right? Grandpa.
I already went to Spain.
I've been back for a long time.
I'm going to my room.
- You didn't try the - No.
I'll go with him.
It's all right.
MEXICO CITY, MEXICO "And instead of finding the culprits of the Desiré club massacre, Mr.
Carlos Duarte has focused on oppressing journalists, silencing us.
And that, dear readers, is something we cannot allow anymore.
" Isn't it good? Claudia.
Do you really think we'll ever make a difference? OPEN LETTER TO CARLOS DUARTE A difference in our readers? No, I mean a difference in the country.
Something more meaningful.
Well, that's what we strive for, Héctor, isn't it? Yes, it's just I don't know, sometimes I feel it's so hard.
No, I think we will make it.
But we do need solid proof to bring down these criminals once and for all.
Well, all right, then! Tell me a bit about your plans.
I would like to manage your money.
A man such as yourself needs to be very careful with the money he makes.
Yes, and that's not always easy.
That's true.
That's where I come in.
Every month you're losing 20 to 25% of your earnings to have someone launder your dirty money.
Yes, it may be so.
I wouldn't charge you for that.
Nothing? I've been in this business long enough to know when something sounds too good to be true.
I wouldn't charge you directly, but of course, I'd reap my benefits: managing that money my own way on the stock market.
Basically, I'm offering you a place in a financial business that will bring you more and better benefits than what you're getting.
I see you're not the kind to show up with a briefcase full of money.
I don't use briefcases.
You also don't use that white stuff traveling from south to north, right? That's like money.
You don't need to touch it in order to work.
You know what? I like the way you think.
But I have to give you one warning.
My associates and don't like to lose.
Neither do I.
All right, Papa.
Calm down now.
Chisca! It's okay, dear, I don't know - Chisca! - Coming! What happened? - Call Dr.
Navarro, please.
- What happened to Grandpa? - What's wrong? - Nothing.
- His chest hurts! - What do you mean? - What's wrong with Grandpa? - I don't know.
Call the doctor.
- I don't have his number! - On my phone, it's in the bathroom.
I think it's in my bag! No, dear.
How can you say nothing hurts? Look at your face! Tell me, how is that gorgeous heart doing? - No, come on, Grandma.
- Aren't you happy? - Yes, but there are no men.
- How can there not be? I want to see you happy next to your man.
No men, Grandma.
What men would I like? Excuse me, a certain Miguel Garza is looking for you.
Oh, geez.
Let him in, thank you.
And who would that be? No, he's a friend.
So, don't get started, Grandma.
Please behave.
I know you.
Oh, my goodness, what a gorgeous thing! Oh, so handsome, my boy! You should have warned us.
I'd have dolled myself up a bit, my child! Adela speaks so fondly of you that I had to meet you.
- For me, my boy? - My pleasure.
How did you know that I love chocolate? Your boyfriend is so nice! No, Grandma, I've already told you, Miguel is not my boyfriend.
But why not? Isn't she so pretty? Come on, Grandma, stop.
- She's beautiful! - Come on, sit down.
Eat your chocolate.
You've already met, so we'll be going now.
- Why the hurry? - Before you say anything else.
- I'm not leaving.
I'm being dragged! - No! Play nice, I'll be right back! Oh, and you play naughty, my beautiful child! Goodness! I have to leave for Miami urgently.
Do you ever sit still? If you want, I can send you to Ciudad Jiménez right away.
No, thanks.
I'd rather stay for a couple more days.
Well, then take the flight back whenever you want.
It's on me.
Well, then, thank you.
If you ever need me to lend you an ear or anything, call me.
Hi there, Doc.
Let me look at what you're hauling in the back.
- Yeah.
- It's just routine.
Sure, go ahead.
What's up? Everything all right? All clear, Doc.
He's stable for the time being, but it is important that you're aware that he had a pre-heart attack.
- Oh, this cannot be.
- What? And what comes next? It's just There isn't much to do now.
I need to tell you he doesn't have much longer.
Calm down, sis.
- Thank you for everything, Doctor.
- There's no need to thank me, Dora.
Thank you, excuse me.
If you need anything, please, you know where to find me, all right? - See you later.
- See you later.
- Bye, Chisca.
- Bye.
Where the hell is Miguel when we need him? Calm down, Chisca.
Your brother is looking after the business.
"The business"? Come on, Dora, think for a second.
If my grandpa dies, there won't be any business.
That is not true.
- Why is Miguel in Mexico City? - I've already told you.
We won't tell him a thing about this, got it? Come here.
Give me that phone! We won't tell him! What's wrong with you! Miguel made a promise to our associates and won't be able to come back until he has enough time to hold up his end of the deal! Get it? Dora, this is not a joke.
My grandpa is dying! Yes, and we're doing his will.
And I won't hear any more of this! Give me back my phone, Dora! This sauce is not spicy.
Oh, that Britany.
She won't get it.
I always tell her, but she never listens.
And don't you have any hands? Yeah, I just got them done.
Do you like it? I mean, if the maid doesn't know how, then you should do it.
All right, don't talk to me like that, sweetie.
And where's your slob of a son? Don't say anything to him.
He's so sleep-deprived.
Oh, yeah? From doing what? Watching TV? At least make him sweep, move those feet, just look at the floor.
- Fine, cool it, okay? - Italian flooring, what for? - Such a waste.
- Ma'am, I'm sorry to interrupt I said, "What do you want?" I went to stake out Lamberto's house.
- And? - The doctor went to the geezer's house.
In his truck he had some of that equipment you use when people are about to kick the bucket.
So, the geezer has little time left.
We need to act fast, Tacho.
Well done.
Thank you, sir.
Hello? Okay, I'll be there.
Tacho, get the plane ready.
I need to pop off to Mexico City.
- Right away? - No.
Next year, you moron.
Hurry up, we don't have all day! Enjoy your meal, ma'am.
Are you leaving again? Ma'am, I'm sorry for sticking my nose, but I want to help.
Do you need anything? Oh, Peligros.
I need a miracle to bring my husband back.
I know.
Hey, why don't we take the boss to Mexico City, like Ms.
Chisca says? You know medicine is more advanced over there, and who knows, we may find a good clinic that can help him.
He may not remember who we are.
But I'm perfectly aware of who he is.
He'd never forgive me if I took him away from here.
This is his place, and he will stay here until the end.
Whatever you say, ma'am.
- Samuel.
- Samuel McGregor.
Friends of Tadamichi Naga are also my friends.
How can I help you? CARIBBEAN SOCIETIES MANAGER Samuel, I need to create a few companies.
You know, fronts.
Of course.
What would you like them to be? Ecotechnology.
Sounds good.
Very trendy.
I need confidentiality and extreme security.
Of course.
I also need a name for a company.
I've been thinking Ecogreen.
Consider it done.
Now how much starting capital would you like for kick-starting this company? Two million dollars.
Another thing.
A frontman.
That is, someone who'll be the public face for the company.
Any suggestions? There's this lawyer who I think could be the perfect guy for this case.
Edgar Sánchez Morris.
I have the company and the money.
US LEGAL AFFAIRS LAWYER I only need someone willing to make a good deal by saying both things are his property.
Well, I have the perfect man for you.
Leopoldo Santamarina.
ECOGREEN FRONTMAN CANDIDATE Owner of a chain of electric car dealerships.
A leader in this so-called green economy.
But what he cares about the most is money.
And does this Leopoldo guy have anything to hide? Well, let's say Leopoldo has a certain hobby.
- Good day.
- Good day.
I'm looking for Mr.
Leopoldo Santamarina.
- On whose behalf? - Tell him it's from Mr.
Sánchez Morris.
- Just a moment, please.
- Okay.
Come in, please.
Thank you.
- Hello, again.
- Edgar.
Good day.
- Fine, and you? - Very well.
Tell me.
Have you thought about my offer? Yes, I thought about your offer.
But I'm not so sure.
I need more information.
What do you want to know? Where the money is coming from.
Well, that's something I can't tell you.
Well, until you can my answer is no.
Nothing to do about it.
- It was nice to see you.
- Likewise.
Take care.
I think we'll have to find someone else.
No, we don't have time.
But I can't see how we could convince him.
I'll handle it.
I thought you didn't want him to see your face.
And who said he'd be seeing my face? I'm dying to know what you are planning.
Maybe you could check again.
The room is in the penthouse, sir.
Thank you.
Could I have some water, please? Thank you.
Who are you? It doesn't matter, Leopoldo.
Now listen carefully.
If you want to keep playing around and dressing up like babes without your wife knowing, accept the offer from Sánchez Morris.
- Okay, did you get all that? - Okay.
Tomorrow you'll sign those papers for Ecogreen.
I swear you'll be making more money than you ever thought possible.
I'll keep an eye on you.
Don't let me down.
MEXICO CITY - That situation is already under control.
- Under control? Whose control? I've got dirt up to my neck! I tell you it's under control, man.
It was just a misunderstanding.
That's why I have a journalist breathing down my neck.
Well, that's nothing new, Carlos.
He wants me to tell him what happened at Desiré.
Well, eventually he'll get tired of asking, man! His sister was one of the people killed! You think he'll get bored? I can't go covering up your stupid screw-ups.
Wait, you're the one who's screwing up.
Let me just remind you I'm constantly cleaning up after your messes.
All right, enough.
- What? - Enough! Enough what? What's wrong? - I'm fed up! - Fed up? - With what? - What do you mean? You been telling me for months you'll leave your wife and it hasn't happened! Honey, understand me.
I like being here with you.
It's very hard! - Is it so hard? - I tried talking to her! It's not hard for me! If you won't do it, I will.
Natalia, what are you doing? Drop that phone, Natalia! - What's wrong with you! No! - Let go of that phone! - Natalia, let it go! - No! Natalia? Natalia! I'll make an anonymous call.
The police will come looking for you.
The only thing you need to do is act surprised, as if you didn't know they were coming for you.
And my family? You take the blame for this girl's death, and don't worry about your family.
I'll handle it.
All right, Boss.
We'll do that.
Everything is sorted out.
Thank you, Epigmenio.
No, don't thank me.
You will keep your promise to me.
Yes, I will do whatever I can, okay? Just like you want to be president I want to be the head of the group.
Are we clear? Let's go, Tacho.
"Braulio López, hitman from Ciudad Jiménez, jailed over murder of Natalia Ríos YOUNG WOMAN KILLED BY NARC MAFIA López confessed it was a stray bullet from a drug cartel shootout.
" Miguel Garza wasn't in the picture before.
Well, I don't care about that brat.
That "brat" can earn us a whole lot of money.
We need to milk him to our benefit.
Don't tell me you believe him.
Seems trustworthy.
And once we stop having a use for him, I'll personally put him in jail.
Well, to be perfectly honest, I don't want anything to do with that Japanese guy.
We need to make the most of his financial ideas.
He's in Miami right now, setting his plan in motion.
And how do you know that? I know more than you think.
When you and I bring Miguel Garza down, we'll both come out on top.
Me, because catching a man like him will be an important political win.
And you, because the Salado group will finally be yours.
Hold on a second, all right? Hey, Miguel! Come right in, we have plenty to celebrate.
- Thanks.
- Look, I don't know how you did it, but our friend agreed to be part of the Ecogreen deal.
You want to get to the Russians, don't you? I got you covered, follow me.
There she is.
Gorgeous, isn't she? Gorgeous falls short.
An ambitious, unscrupulous woman.
But as I told you, with legs like those, who cares? Well! Would you look at that luck.
Edgar, darling, won't you introduce me to your friend? CONTACT WITH EUROPEAN MAFIA Of course, Karina, it'll be my pleasure.
This is Miguel Garza.
But who can introduce him better than himself, am I right? - Nice to meet you.
- Excuse me.
So, what do you do, Miguel Garza? Financing.
Just like that? Just like that.
I love men of few words.
And something tells me I could be of great help to you.
Yeah? What could you help me with? With many things.
I have some contacts you could be interested in.
Contacts, what sort of contacts? You think I'm that easy? Tell me what sort of financing you run, and then we'll talk.
Gorgeous and smart.
I don't want to say goodbye.
You don't have to.
You're quite blunt.
And I can be even more so.
We can continue at my place.
Is that part of a business strategy? Sure.
Take it or leave it.
Edgar, thank you for the invitation.
My pleasure, you're always welcome.
It was an interesting evening.
Watch your step.
You won't find anything I don't want you to find.
- I'm not searching for anything.
- You're very observant.
Got to be very careful around people like you.
I think the same about you.
Are you going to make me speak Japanese? Well, I can see you've done quite a lot of homework.
Never go to bed with someone if you don't know where he came from.
Safe sex above all.
Whiskey? Yes, sure.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
I could never say no or get on the bad side of the daughter of a KGB agent.
I see you did your homework at that party as well.
What are you looking for? Getting to the Russians.
I have to give them a good reference.
You'll get them.
Might as well take her to bed before bringing her back to Ukraine.
US INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE (IRS) I doubt she'd like it, sir, with all due respect.
Shut up.
And come to think of it, Karina can lead us to better targets.
She's very well connected.
I need to catch bigger fish, Jeremías! Lately it's been nothing but small fries! Well, we're getting there, slowly but surely, don't be so negative.
No, I just need to look good in front of the head of the Revenue Service office.
That's for sure.
Who could he be? I don't know.
Should we keep an eye on him? Yes, you should.
Find out everything about him.
Maybe that's the big fish I've been looking for.
