The dramatic story of Julian, a Dominican drug lord who despite his confinement in prison, was still able to maintain Dominican society in a state of suspense, for over 13 years. At the early age of 12, he witnessed the death of his father at the hands of local military authorities, during a well-meant attempt to hand-over a package of drugs he had incidentally found at sea while fishing. As a result of this experience, Julian develops a thirst for revenge that leads him to kill all those involved in his father's death.

I wanted to like the movie more, but there was too much and not enough going on.
I honestly Thought it was going to be the Dominican Scarface.
Too melodramatic for what I'm use to. it felt like I was watching a soap on Telemondo, which is not my preference, especially when I'm expecting Dominican Scarface.
A lot of it just seem too cut and paced together with nothing really happening.
Julian comes from a simple background and after his father is murdered by the cops for doing the right thing, he grows up to become the DR's biggest drug lord in order to get revenge on the people responsible, but of course the money and the women don't hurt.
It felt like there was too much ground to cover and the movie tries to cover it all.
I think I was expecting too much out of the film, cause it really falls short.
