A través de testimonios directos de capos, pilotos de planeadoras, arrepentidos, jueces, policías, periodistas y madres de toxicómanos, Nacho Carretero retrata con minuciosidad un paisaje felony con frecuencia infravalorado.

No se debe olvidar lo que todavía no ha terminado.
Un ensayo muy bien documentado sobre una realidad oscura de Galicia
