Entre la vida y la muerte
Leo Castaneda, a Spaniard who fled Belgium, works as a metro driver, away from his previous life which he does not want to remember. One night, as the train arrives at the station, he sees a young man that is staggering on the edge of the platform and ends up falling on the track. He is not just a random suicide: it is his son, Hugo, whom he had not seen for more than two years. After his death, Leo begins to investigate and discovers that Hugo was involved in a mafia that had carried out a violent heist. Eager to find the truth, Leo follows the footsteps of the criminal organization to try to find out what his son's last days were like and the possible reason that led him to take such a terrible decision. But Leo is not alone: Police Inspector Virginie Rivage, fearing that Leo may be dangerous, follows him closely and tries to find out his true identity before it's too late. Who is actually Leo Castaneda?
