“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.
