Synopsis

Salvador Chaparro is a theater actor who always dreamed of becoming a star, but never made it. However, life had an important role for him: playing Vicente Vallejo, a well-known and powerful drug Lord who decides to turn himself to the authorities. In this case, it isn’t precisely Vicente Vallejo who surrenders, but his double Salvador Chaparro. During the process of the fake self-surrender, a highly powerful bomb explodes. As a result, dozens of bodies, including police officers and journalists, cover the site. Salvador doesn’t suffer any injuries and manages to escape, but the real Vallejo orders his men to find him and kill him. The similarities between Vallejo and Salvador are undeniable. However, Vallejo wants his double to look exactly like him so he puts Salvador through a facial surgery against his will. When Salvador wakes up from the effects of the anesthesia, he realizes that his face is now an identical reflection of Vallejo´s. What’s more amazing is that the drug lord orders a DNA test for both him and Salvador, and discovers that they are half-brothers; sons of the same father but different mother. Salvador will be forced to do everything Vallejo asks in order to keep his family safe.
