A crime saga about the Santos Family Law Practice in El Paso of the 1980's loosely based on the Chagra brothers killing of Judge John Wood. Drugs, gambling, and trafficking fuel the law office of Santos & Santos, and the brothers are quick to incorporate the younger brother after the death of their father. He questions his relationship to his heritage as he sees his brothers so eagerly trying to live the life of the "American." When one of the brothers is tried for murder, Tomas leads an elaborate plot to assassinate the presiding judge in the trial.
