SynopsisEdit

After a failed jewellery heist, Aurora Rodriguez (Ariadna Gil) is caught and sentenced to eight years in prison, while her three accomplices get away. Aurora's sister, prostitute Ana (Elena Anaya), meets a powerful Mexican drug lord Felix (José María Yazpik) during a job and agrees to marry him. While Paloma (Pilar López de Ayala) leverages her connections as a court secretary to influence a judge into reducing Aurora's sentence to four years, Gloria (Victoria Abril) joins Ana in Mexico and discovers that Felix has been brutally abusing Ana.

Just as Ana reveals to Gloria that she intends to get back at Felix by stealing all his money, Felix viciously beats Ana in a fit of rage and leaves her barely alive and hospitalized. Paloma secures Aurora's release from prison and they join Gloria and Ana in Mexico, where the four women set Ana's plan in motion. Meanwhile, Felix's right hand man Gabriel (Diego Luna) has spent twenty years waiting to take revenge on his father, currently in prison for beating Gabriel's mother to death. Though Gabriel begins developing suspicions towards what Aurora and her friends are planning, Felix's violent behavior causes him to question his unwavering loyalty to his childhood friend.
