Sadly, the marsh is just about where this belongs...
Now I am not quite sure how this went from quite a promising start to quite such an insipid, dreary drama quite so quickly. We have a writer "Q" (Pedro Alonso) who is actually a downright evil creature. What he writes as fiction has it's roots based far more in fact that many realise - especially his readers. When he seeks further inspiration for his novels by kidnapping a local politician ("Carretero") this attracts the attention of a local drug kingpin and soon "Q" is walking a very fine line, in considerable peril.... What happened?? The acting is completely devoid of any sort of spirit; there's no cohesion and Carmina Barrios' expletive-ridden performance as "La Puri" borders on the comical - and not in a good way. The storyline has more twists and turns than an adder on steroids, and the dialogue might as well have been written by one, too. A really pity, Marc Vigil just couldn't take this quite intriguing tale and do anything remotely interesting with it.
