Inspired by true events, this thriller set in the 1960s tells the story of Helena (Adriana Ugarte, Julieta, The Time in Between), a prostitute who becomes a pawn in the hands of Malpica (Javier Rey, Fariña, Velvet), the head of a criminal gang operating in Barcelona.
The center of operations for Malpica and his gang, including the unstoppable Arístides (Marc Martínez, Infieles) and lawyer Julio Senovilla (Pep Ambròs, Matadero), is The Albatross Club. Managed by Celeste (Ingrid Rubio, Lifeline), the nightclub is where frequenters, from foreign visitors to city slickers, lose themselves in the music of the time.
On the right side of the law is the newly-established Narcotics squad, led by Inspector Alejandro Vinuesa (Eduardo Noriega, The Last Stand), his partner Eladio Pérez (Josep Julien, The Ministry of Time), and Commissioner Clemente Larrubia, (Álex Casanovas, Night and Day), as well as the Commissioner’s secretary Silvia Velasco (Marina Salas, The Boat).
For Helena, she goes through a steep and hazardous learning curve that takes her from the lowest rung of Malpica’s organization to the top, and seizes control of its heroin operation.

Olivia struggles to survive the hostile world of prison and begins to question her own motivations.
