Mauro Hernández, a young policeman, becomes involved in a coke deal, and when problems arise, gives his gun away to cover the deal. Things get out of control when the media gets involved. A scandal over the bad quality of police body armor turns into an investigation of misappropriation of police funds, and Mauro is labeled as a victim of administrative corruption. Using the power that his uniform gives him and the sympathy of the media, Mauro starts to blackmail anyone who crosses his way. Mauro and his commander become involved in a dirty war inside the police force, a struggle filled with espionage, murders, and betrayal.
