The Colonel runs a bordello and is an arms’ trafficker. He is an exile in a western country, a respectable gangster. He is fleeing from a past that torments him in the form of a dead girl, the International Court in hot pursuit, and La Madame, who runs his brothel, threatens to hasten his downfall. The Colonel’s only consolation is a boa. El Pigues, a boy who has just arrived from his country, dazzles him with his ambition and he lets him work for him. But betrayal is the Colonel’s shadow, and he will end up accepting his fate as inevitable.
