Twin brothers nicknamed “Water” and “Power” from the hard scrabble Eastside streets of Los Angeles rise like prince’s through the city’s political and police ranks to become players in a complex and dangerous web of the powerful and corrupt of Los Angeles. One a decorated cop – the other a senator, find themselves in a seedy motel room on the eastern edge of Sunset Boulevard on a dark and rainy night. Something has gone very wrong. Can Power exist without Water? The Fixers and Powers of the city need answers. Everybody is looking for the Twins. Viva Chicano Noir!

Desde las calles corrompidas en el este de Los Ángeles, dos hermanos gemelos con el apodo de “Water” y “Poder” escalan como dos príncipes de la ciudad hasta los más altos corredores del poder. Uno de ellos, un reconocido policía y el otro un senador, se encuentran en un cuarto de hotel sobre la calle de Sunset Boulevard durante una larga noche oscura y fría. Algo terrible ha sucedido. ¿Podrá “Power” existir sin “Water”? Los grandes poderes de la cuidad exigen una respuesta. Todo mundo está en la búsqueda por los gemelos. !Viva el noir Chicano!
