Really enjoyable series with an intense family drama , high doses of violence with grisly killings committed in cold blood , strong love scenes, thrills , twists and turns. At the begining it is a simple story about a strange family to do business with dope , but little by little the engaging roles result to be more and more complex and disturbing . The plot spreads to the surprising breaking point filled with massacre and extreme violence. It is rated ¨R¨ for a lot of loving scenes , nudism , slaughters , profanity and violent events . This one deals with a mobster family, as a stiff father magnetically played by Jose Coronado who controls and mistreats their children, though he only appears in a few episodes .
