Maria loves her husband, Mateo, a high-level member of the Rocio Cartel, one of the largest Colombian suppliers of cocaine to the U.S. Having grown up in poverty, Maria is highly appreciative of the lifestyle afforded by her husband's job: Fancy cars, expensive clothes, a palatial home in Cartagena. If there's blood on the money, Maria doesn't care to know. But Maria is forced from her state of ignorance when Mateo kidnaps a 9 year-old boy, Antonio, whose father is suspected of stealing millions from the Cartel. Antonio's father is killed in the course of an interrogation, making Antonio the only person left alive who may know the location of the stolen money. When Maria discovers her husband mercilessly torturing Antonio to extract information Antonio may not even possess, she is faced with a choice: let the boy suffer, or risk her life attempting to shield him from her husband and the Cartel.
