It takes place in the Galicia (Spain) of the 80s, when the fishing sector was transformed and many of the shipowners became indebted. This situation will be favorable for the start of activities such as contraband and drug trafficking.
Antonio Durán 'Morris'
Learning that cannabis will be legalized, Joseph, a failed entrepreneur, decides to transform, with the help of his family and friends, the kosher butcher shop of his father and open the first marijuana coffeeshop in France.
Will Lucie Borleteau be the next French Kathryn Bigelow? We'll see, but in the mean time, this mini series looks like a pure man and brutal piece of work. Not as great as THE WIRE, of course, but for a French series, it's not bad at all, especially if you consider the mostly unknown actors, except Jean-Michel Correia, the former bank robber in the real life. He is here outstanding, although he has not the lead role. But the least he has is more than convincing. It's a story about drug traffic between Spain and French ghetto, with plenty of violence and betrayal, passion and revenge, with no real good guy nor bad dude either. A story of survival and hopeless dreams. It could have been a TV stuff made by and for Canal+ channel.
