Heavier Than Water (Más Que El Agua)

Synopsis: Nicolás has been in the cannabis business since he was a teenager. He has managed to create an underworld around him in which he seems to be in control of everything, but it is time to remove his brother from the business if he wants it to progress in a society that is increasingly hostile to people like them. Getting him a job at his former partner's restaurant seems like the best alternative. But her refusal to allow any of them to be close to her family and daughter, her brother's rebellion to follow the path that he wants to trace for him and a small mistake from his close past will put him in a situation that he never imagined. Without knowing it, he will gradually collapse everything he has built and take both families behind him.
