Amador is the advisor and second-in-command of the criminal faction of Lokos, the ultras group of Barcelona Football Club. The gang extort money, beat people up on demand, sell drugs and wipe out enemy gangs. The group’s capo is Alberto Cid, alias El Cid, a soulless and unscrupulous psychopath. Amador and El Cid, legendary neo-Nazi skinheads of the southern goal end during the 1980s and 1990s, were inseparable until something broke them apart. Amador has many secrets, the greatest of which is his homosexuality. César “Wild Boar” Beltrán is a former rugby player who makes a living by avenging victims of paedophiles and hit-and-run victims. He lives a clandestine life and his social circle includes only his sister, Paloma, and his niece, Lucía. César and Amador are brought together by a kidnapping, a raid, and the disappearance of some stolen goods, with results that neither of them could have expected.
