Storyline

A policeman tries to find out the killer of his brother who was a pianist and a morphine. As a member of the Drug Enforcement Department, he tries to identify the head of a drug dealer spiral. But his unorthodox way of acting upsets his superiors. Nevertheless, they allow him to continue the investigations because he is unknown in the underworld. When the spiral discovers that he is a police officer, he makes him a drug addict, but he manages to detoxify and finally capture the brain of the spiral. Written by Tony Montana
