Desperate to find her friend, Gloria must work alongside her captors if she is to have any hope of returning to normality, but at what cost?

As she forces her way up the cartel hierarchy, Gloria develops resilience, strength and cunning to build a relationship with Lino (Ismael Cruz Cordova) to keep herself and those she loves most away from danger.
Juggling loyalties, romance and power, Gloria must plan every move, play every side and risk everything if she’s going to finish on top. But in the end, the bullet settles everything.
