(EPISODES 1 TO 3)
In the fictional town of Lagros, an idealistic new Mayor faces some real problems. Mayor Joseph Santiago, played by Rocco Nacino, discovers a bunch of wayward employees have turned the municipal hall into a boarding house and, worse, have been making under the table deals at every turn. His efforts to fight corruption - both petty and large scale - are blocked by a political dynasty led by Governor Antonio Rubio and Congressman Anton Rubio, played by father and son tandem Pen and Ping Medina. The tension between the reform-minded Mayor and the corrupt Governor blows up into dramatic and very public confrontations.
