The film is based on true events.

Certain characters, names and

events have been dramatized.

I have been forced to leave a house in the

middle of the night because of a man earlier.

But this is the first time I have

been forced to leave a country.

7221, you're ready to fly in.

Okay, good people, now

we enter US airspace.

You are safe now.


I have traveled this trip earlier.

Dozens of white roses were always

waiting for me in every hotel room.

But the men posted at the

door did not wear uniform.

They called Armani.

So, Virginia...

In the next few days, you will meet

representatives from the Justice Department

and they will inform you about the

procedure you are going to follow.

Can anyone give me an aspirin, thank you?

My head will explode.

Ms., for your own safety, do not

leave the room or contact anyone.

Two of my men stand guard outside.

Do you understand?

Can you ask them to get aspirin please?

Virginia, American hotels do

not give out aspirin anymore.

It is considered a drug in this country.

Pablo had also laughed.

Then he would kill them.


Come on, guys!

Damn horse

Jsses, poor little animals.

We have to kill it, the boss.

Do it, Pelao.


Have you seen the guest list?

"It's full of beautiful women.

"Colombia is full of beautiful women.

- It's a party.

- Actresses, models...

and soccer players,

trade representatives.

- You are much more beautiful.

- Other trade unionists?

See who's coming.

I do not like it, Pablo. Stores should

be kept separate from the family.

- We have already talked about it.

- I know, I know.

Everything is messy with all the

preparations. I will take care of it.

- I have the torpedo you asked for.

- I'll talk to him.

Take him from here.

I do not want to see him here.

Juan Pablo.

If you find the coin,

you'll keep it.

We are here to raise the mood.

One two Three. Do you hear me?

- The boss.

- I have a job for you in Leticia.

There's an old file that connects

me to the murder of two DAS agents.

You must make sure everything is lost.

Clean up everything.

You have contacts there, right?

Of course, the boss.

My cousin's wife is working on court.

- She can let me in.

- Dad?

I do not care if you

have to kill someone.

You can burn down the building if you want.

But get rid of the file, understood?

You get 30,000 for your expenses:

Travel, ammunition, everything.

Ask Salvador for more

money if needed.

- Take care of it. Get started now.

- Yes Boss.

- Did you find the coin?

- It's only five pesos.

Just five pesos? Do you know how

hard daddy works to make money?

"Just five pesos."

Is it the farm down there?

We have already flown over

it for a while, my dear.

Connect with the manager.

- We are being kidnapped.

- It's okay, Virgie. Calm down.

It is not OK.

Do we know how much we are worth?

We had all heard of our host,

but no one had met him.

His name was at the top of

the list of New Africa.

A group of young men who earned great

fortunes in a short period of time.


Do not worry about the weapons.

They protect us from the animals.

We have a small zoo here.

Do you want to see it?

You almost scared our lives.

Please warm our host not to

welcome his guests in such a way.

As soon as I see him.

There they are.

Hello, they are so beautiful.

They are very happy here.

They like Colombia.

Because they do not read the newspaper.

The house is huge.

But I do not see the servants anywhere.

There they are.

The new upper class has

its own social structure.

Down in the corridors, the soldiers:

Young, untrained men from the slum.

Organization's warriors.

They are far from the humble

servants who work in the farms

among the traditionally rich

families in my country.

They are confident, they

take care of safety, and...

How are you, Miss Virginia?

Good evening.

Has a good taste for women.

Virginia, I never miss your show.

You are so Beautiful.

Thank you, ma'am. You look amazing.

Above them, the cream.

Artists, businessmen, soccer players.

Journalists, Models.

Constantly close to our host.

Cover your ears, Victor.

There are so many beautiful men here.

Who created that wonderful dress?

Anyone who is someone is here.

Good Lord, where does the money come from?

That is the question a

reporter has to ask.

Bravo! Bravo!

Miss Vallejo, it's an honor

to have you with us tonight.

An admirer wants to

assign this song to you.

See what you have to say!

Virginia, Virginia.

Goodbye, where have you hid?

Pablo asks for you.

He makes us crazy, so come now.

Victor, wait here. Do not fall in love

with anyone from the neighborhood.

And on top of it:

The kings of the white mountain.

We do not know their name yet, but

soon every colombian will do it.

She was easy to find.

I just followed all the people's eyes.

- Pablo? Pablo Escobar?

- I'll leave you alone.

- I heard your complaints. Forgive me.

- You lied to me.

Of course I lied to you.

I did not want you to leave us.

"You are more beautiful in reality.

Then I have to kick my makeup."

People are talking about you.

They wonder about your past.

No, no, no, do not listen to them.

I'm just listening to

speculation about the future.

I already know my past.

- And what are we celebrating?

- The founding of a company.

What kind of company?

A philanthropic

We build houses for the poor.

Has nobody mentioned Medellin without slum?

We will build 2,000 homes

for the people on the dump.

- I got a good prize on a plot.

- And where does the money come from?

- Is this an interview?

- I'm a journalist.

Follow and see.

Follow along and I'll show you.

It's good for the country to know.

Good for the country, or good for you?

Am I not a part of the country?

What we did not know was that we witnessed

the formation of the

famous Medellin cartel

and that Pablo was crowned as its king.

Things would change forever.

In Colombia and in my life.


Breathe through your mouth,

you'll get used to it quickly.

See where you go.

People dump bodies here sometimes.

Don Pablo! Don Pablo!

Pablito. How's your mom?

Is she recovering?

Paulito! Don Pablo is here. Come here.

- Hey, everyone Pablo here?

- All. They are baptized after him.

We are completing 600, but

we want to build 2,000.

Oh my God.

Good day, Mr. Escobar. Tell the viewers

about the motivation and the goal

behind the wonderful initiative,

"Medellin without slum".

It's painful for us to see

so many children starve

and completely without

protection from the government.

Building these houses for them helps us

to create the country we have dreamed of.

I love Colombia and now we have a chance

to give something back to this country.

That's exactly what we do.

That day, I decided I do not

care how Pablo earns his money.

Just how he uses them.

Come in.

Virginia, how beautiful you are.

Thanks sweetie. Hope it tastes.
