Inspector Santos Trinidad, a veteran policeman, drinks too much and works too little, perhaps to forget that he was once a top officer at the Intelligence Unit, now demoted to Missing Persons. Events turn sour one night and Santos finds himself implicated in a triple homicide at an after-hours club.
He cleans up the crime scene and starts the hunt for the one witness who managed to escape. The trail leads Santos to a complicated and sordid network of drug trafficking and prostitution that finances a far more sophisticated criminal plan.
Although the official investigation on the triple murder begins to tighten its net around him, Santos is finally back doing what he does best. No habrá paz para los malvados took home six Goya Awards, including Best Film, Director, and Actor.
