When ambition knows no boundaries, and money is religion.

HDP are the initials of Hugo David Prado, owner of Grupo Alfa, the largest business conglomerate in the country. As owner of more than one hundred companies, a bank and a television network, for this tycoon his religion is money. When a global pandemic hits the country, Hugo will take advantage of the restrictions imposed by the government to boost his business threefold. After the proclamation “Grupo Alfa will not close. The country should not either”, the tycoon opposes to cease his business activity, compromising the lives of his 180,000 workers who do not have the courage to protest it. However, Valeria, Hugo’s chief of staff, decides to confront the situation.

Valeria is a successful economist who comes from a modest background. Her successful business trajectory and PhD from Harvard have made her an ambitious professional with a neoliberal ideology. But her beliefs are put to the test with the onset pandemic. Valeria witnesses how her sister Claudia, the director of a hospital collapsed by the pandemic, puts her life on the line to cure those who are ill/infected, while her boss puts his business objectives before the lives of his workers. At first Valeria remains passive in the face of the situation, taking refuge in the idea that she has not caused the problem. But the company’s excesses force her to take a stand. Valeria will also be influenced by her girlfriend “La Furia” (the fury in English), an activist devoted to seeking world balance, destabilized by voracious capitalism.

Valeria will delve into the nooks and crannies of the firm in an attempt to find out what are the interests operating at the pinnacle of power. Seeing a pile of corpses piled up in a giant freezer, as if they were mere merchandise, makes Valeria realize that her company is willing to do anything to achieve its goals.
