Synopsis

“A survival drama that who´s taken and those who wait his return”
The trip of the industry man Gabriel Avila to the Visitacion farm on his birthday, accompanied by his friend Jorge Mario Rubio, is the anteroom for a trip to hell because in the rice producing farm, guerrillas infiltrated as workers, kidnap them.

Gabriel and Jorge Mario are taken deliberately to the DMZ, where the military were removed by the government with the purpose of carrying out peace negotiations with the guerrillas.

In Bogota, Gabriel’s family starts a titanic battle to bring back their kidnapped loved ones. The immediate reaction is led by the Intelligence Captain Esteban Avila, who, despite all of his efforts, is not able to keep his brother from being kidnapped because he can’t go inside the DMZ under any excuse, since it’s forbidden by the Government. However, he is an advocate of rescues and doesn’t accept Andrea’s, Gabriel’s wife, decision to pay the guerrillas a ransom for her husband’s liberation. The two positions polarize the family completely. The efforts of some offend the others and confront them with their convictions and their deepest fears.

In the jungle, Gabriel and his friend discover that it is basically impossible, they are held captive in a zone completely controlled by the guerrillas, in a region that they don’t know, they don’t have a gun, a phone, not even the basic training to survive alone in the jungle.

And to make things worse, they are guarded 24 hours a day. They have to be with an armed guerrilla member even to go to the bathroom. They are ten hours from Bogota but 100 hundred years from civilization.

Around the hostages, there is an army of young farmers recruited in the countryside, young people who don’t know an option of life other than the armed employment; from this group, the warrior Samurai is born, he is a fierce prisoner guard that will become the key for Gabriel’s survival and in the end, the key to freedom as well.

Very soon, Gabriel designs the plan to become a hair stylist in order to get closer to the guerrilla fronts commanders and will call himself The Stylist, willing to shave, make special cuts, bangs, the trendiest cuts, the “Humberto” cut or the cut that covers up the face wounds suffered in combat.

The Stylist is Gabriel’s well meditated strategy of how to establish himself around the power circles in order to listen to the conversations of the commanders and obtain information.

Turned into a hair stylist, Gabriel starts to identify where in the planet he is being held captive, he deducts how far he is from his home, he discovers how to get in touch with his brother Esteban and with this, he opens up a window to freedom.

Synopsis

El Capo is determined to end the business that gave him money and power in the past, so he writes with Terry, the OPACproject. The project has the goal of distributing drugs for free around the main cities of the world. Bruna and Tato, his faithful lieutenants who have been free for the last 3 years, start carrying out a plan to get el Capo out of jail, in which new allies come along: Pitre and Kyara. Kyara filters Asimov, the leader of the Russian mafia in New York, in order to obtain benefits for El Capo and OPAC; even though she is doing it for money, when she meets Leon Jaramillo, she will join his team for love. Kyara will become one more of El Capo´s women and even though she would like to be the only one, she will have to understand that El Capo will always love just one woman: Isabel Cristina.
El Capo´s prison break involves Steven Brandon, Director of the DEA and Colonel Velandia, who agree to get Leon Jaramillo out of jail in order to help rescue Brandon´s kidnapped family. With El Capo on the streets of New York, OPAC begins and the machinery to find the drugs that will be given out is moved; this is how they will soon be facing Asimov and Bad Boy, Pacifico Blanco´s step son. However, not everything is a fight for El Capo because his freedom is his opportunity to see his family and conquer Bruna´s heart again, even though the later isn´t possible because she is in a relationship with Colonel Velandia. This is a relationship that doesn´t make Bruna happy because she still loves El Capo; however, she won´t be able to get him back because she will discover she is pregnant when she tries to.
During the first stage of OPAC, El Capo captures the attention of the media and of his new enemy, Jacob Bauman, the leader of the “Great Invisible Hand”, a secret organization dedicated to laundering money from businesses such as drug trafficking, human trafficking and contraband. Jacob founded Eurostar Bank for this purpose but El Capo makes his business unstable with OPAC. During the second phase of OPAC, El Capo convinces Bad Boy to join his team; he accepts not only for conviction but also for the hope of conquering the woman he has always loved. With a strong team, El Capo decides to promote OPAC in other cities. The team is divided. Bad Boy, Terry and two former DEA agents, Richard and Uno travel to Mexico City looking for alliances for the OPAC; in the meantime, Leon Jaramillo, Tato, Kyara and Pitre travel to Bogota with the same goal. At this point, El Capo will be surprised when his daughter Julieta joins the OPAC and she will end up falling in love with Pitre. On the other hand, Jacob sends Silvio, his best man, to stop the OPAC in Mexico and Colombia, but El Capo receives him with a trap and kills him.
In the final phase, El Capo begins his trip to Europe in a ship he has turned into a cocaine laboratory, but he will run into two FBI agents who have intercepted him to stop the OPAC. On the other hand, Jacob is able to find as Silvio´s successor, the former right hand of Colonel Velandia, Almeida, and who in order to fence El Capo, kidnaps his grandson. Julieta is determined to find her son and filters Jacob in the Vatican while her father arrives on the ship to help her out. In an apotheosis ending, El Capo meets face to face the most powerful criminal in the world. A confrontation where only one of them can survive, but the cards are on the table and Jacob has lost, not only money, but his credibility in society and is about to go to jail while Leon Jaramillo is protected by the DEA and has the chance of starting a new life with Isabel Cristina, Julieta and his grandson, with new identities and new dreams.

Synopsis

Juan is an accountant who for the last 10 years has worked at Etichetta Due, thanks to Daniela who was his girlfriend at the time and worked as a secretary for Osvaldo, the owner of the company. Because of his weak character and for being naive, Juan has always been the office´s laughingstock. His only friend there was Eduardo until the day Juan found him having sex with Daniela (the mother of his two children).
Because of this unfortunate incident, Juan moves out to a small apartment and there decided it was best not to throw away his job as not to lose his seniority due to the fact of his expenses and lack of savings, between the rent of the new apartment and financially supporting his kids and parents, he didn’t have a lot of options. So he convinced himself of going to the office every day like he always had, accepting the fact of having to see his ex-wife and former friend together, and also his disrespectful coworkers.
One afternoon when Juan had just realized that he was feeling miserable, he left work to roam the city streets and while he was snooping around a bookstore found a book that caught his attention. It was the last copy of “MANUAL TO BE HAPPY, 50 infallible recipes to achieve happiness”. Inside it there were hundreds of recipes, practical rules, exercises, advice, premises, and guidelines. Juan couldn’t take the intrigue that maybe magically the reading of the book could change his reality and so he bought it.
Week after week, Juan will read and put into practice each one of the chapters of the book and watching the chaotic consequences it has in his life, but that will also lead him to a self-valuation path and to find true love, because in his office there is a woman that even though she does not work there, she has a more important place than even the Company owner himself: Luisa Sanz, a young woman that owns one of the most important clothing companies in the country. Osvaldo (the boss) is smitten with Luisa, and deeply in love with her bank account and he wants to make her his wife.
Obviously, Luisa doesn’t even notice Juan´s existence. She has never looked at him and she doesn’t even know what position he has in the Company. But little by little, through his successive changes and the situations derived from his clumsiness that often jeopardize the permanence of Luisa as client of the Company, all those details will make her start to notice him and start to have an interest in him. She will find that he has common sense; he is easy going, he is an honest man and true love for her. Juan will find in Luisa a mirror that shows him a better self-image that gives him self-confidence and who encourages to be a better person and thanks to the love they feel for each other, he will start to be closer to happiness.

Synopsis

It´s the end of World War Two. The world is celebrating the trials at Nuremberg and mourning Manolete´s death. In Argentina, Evita becomes the queen of The Shirtless Men and in Colombia, Jorge Eliecer Gaitan proves his convening power in the Torch March.
In this scenario, a maid is knocking on the doors of the manorial houses and of the Bogota Courts, searching for justice. She accuses Buenaventura Nepomuceno Matallana, a rich lawyer, as responsible for the disappearance of her boss. Nobody believes her.
Merceditas Ramos, the maid, hands her scarce evidence to the most famous journalist at the time, Felix Gonzalez Robledo, famous for his police chronicles. Gonzalez Robledo joins forces with an experienced investigator, Benito Capote, and they begin to study the millionaire´s - Matallana´s- actions.
Very soon Merceditas and the investigators will find themselves buried in indications… not of a murder, or two, or ten… there´s tens of disappeared people. They´re not facing a common murderer: they´re facing a serial killer.
The prestigious Matallana goes to jail thanks to the three investigators and his name becomes an alias: “Doctor Mata”. The man swears revenge against Merceditas… and the murder of Jorge Eliecer Gaitan brings him the opportunity to get it. The Bogotazo opens the doors of every jail and Mata is running freely on the streets on fire looking for Merceditas.

Synopsis

“La Playita” or The Little Beach, is not located by the Caribbean Sea, however, it is full of coastal people; The Little Beach is a mini-mall (6 commercial spaces surrounding a small central square) located in the faraway and cold “refrigerator” city of Bogota: the capital. Bogota is a cold city on top of the mountains, at 2600 meters above the sea level and more than 2000 kilometers from the Caribbean coast. As any habitant from the coast would say: “it´s too far and too cold”. The Coastal colony lives in a neighborhood close to The Little Beach; they arrived at this extremely distant city and took over the place.

Synopsis

“Gacha” one of the heads of the Medellin Cartel, at the height of his criminal career he was acknowledged as one of the world's most successful drug dealers. In 1988, Forbes Magazine included him in their annual list of the world's billionaires; this is his story…
Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha – “Gacha” leaves his home town with his pride hurt when the woman he has set his eyes on accuses him of being a liar for having given her a rock pretending it was an emerald. In the emerald mines Gacha finds a legitimate emerald stone, that instead of taking it to the object of his affection; he cashes it in to buy his first shipment of marihuana from Colombia´s northern peninsula of the “Guajira”. Acknowledging the business in front of his eyes Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha understands that the drug market within the United States can only be satisfied by setting up an industrial chain originating in Colombia´s oriental region. In less than 5 years this chain becomes the nucleus of a multinational cocaine sales operation with global reach. The size and the strength of the expansion of the trades contaminate and enrage other inhabitants of Colombia´s Oriental region, among them the communist guerrilla. The scenery that follows is the war between privately funded armies and those financed by Rodriguez Gacha and the subversives. In this illegal war the government is also present, part of it corrupted and the other part has to enforce the law and face one of the richest and deadliest men in the world.
