Y no se le puede culpar de lo ocurrido. Y me hizo caso. Hay que ponerse en el lugar y en el momento. No hubo palabras ni despedidas ni discursos. Murieron el grueso de los guerrilleros y muchos soldados.
Desde las alturas del terreno, Gary Prado dispuso a sus hombres para cortar la huida a quienes intentaran escapar de la encerrona, con fuego de mortero y ametralladora.
Palabra de Gary Prado:. Unos ojos grandes, vivos. En su casa de Santa Cruz, el hoy retirado general Gary Prado asoma una sonrisa de orgullo y remata.

He arrived in Chicago six years ago when he left his hometown, Monterrey, after ending a tormenting relationship with Veronica, who suffocated him with her obsessive order.
When they broke up, he decided to change his environment and left Mexico, chasing the American dream. Through a social network, he finds out that Veronica has a 6-year-old daughter called Valentina. Immediately, Jesus realizes that lovely girl could be his daughter, and bringing his past back to life, he decides to call his ex-girlfriend and discover the truth.
Since he has no money saved, he turns to Ury, a Russian immigrant and regular customer at the pizza restaurant. Ury helps him by buying the plane ticket for him, but in return, Ury asks Jesus to bring a suitcase full of clothes for an orphanage.
Jesus accepts right away, happy to have the chance to meet his little daughter; however, he is unaware that the suitcase has a hidden compartment with almost a million dollars in it.
Ury calls Rogelio Rivadeneira, owner and chairman to a successful company, and informs him that his money is on its way. Rogelio is an arrogant and successful man for whom the most important thing in life is himself. Not even Alma, his beautiful girlfriend, comes first in his heart.
When Jesus arrives at the airport in Monterrey, he is arrested for money laundering and is presented before the authority. Unbeknownst to Jesus, he has committed a federal crime, and with no other options, he tells everything he knows. This way, Ury is arrested in Chicago, and Jesus is freed under custody. When Rogelio learns he has lost nearly a million dollars, he swears to take revenge from the one who spoiled his business.
With his life completely destroyed, out of money, jobless and now with a criminal record, Jesus must start over. He later forms a friendship with Veronica's husband Elias Franco. However, it is destiny that brings Jesus to apply for a job there. When Alma and Jesus meet Jesus is looking for a job in the accounting department, and Alma is looking for a secretary, but none of them clarifies that and Alma thinks it is not a bad idea to have an efficient male secretary instead of a sexy woman.
Ignoring his criminal record, she decides to hire Jesus without letting him know the position for which he is being hired. Jesus finds a place to live at a tenement house, downtown. There, he meets his neighbor, Luisa Herrera nicknamed "Chatita" , a sophisticated woman who is in the first phase of Alzheimer, but happens to be absolutely adorable.
