After seven years after being elected, Anton announced a draft lottery for conscripting the citizens as farmers in tobacco cultivation fields. Anton has a son named Diego who is of 13 years and is groomed to become his successor.
In the capital of Esperanza, as the armed forces of Yara round up the citizens for the draft, Dani gets prepared for escaping to Miami in the US by a fishing boat, along with friends like Alejo Ruiz and Lita Torres.

However, Anton can stop the boat and reveal that Diego wanted to attempt to run away with them. After Diego was retrieved, he ordered the sunken boat by gunfire. Dani can survive the commotion and gets up with a wounded Lita on the beach of an island, at a distance from Esperanza.
As Lita was dead, she started urging Dani to search for Clara Garcia nearby, who is the leader of the guerrilla movement. On her arrival, Clara asks Dani to send her invitation to the ex-spymaster as well as the weapon maker named Juan Cortez back here. This causes the distribution of production of Viviro tobacco on the island and also clear blockage trapping all guerrillas in the area.
When Dani fulfills the tasks, Clara gifted her boat to flee. If Dani doesn’t leave, Clara gives her the order to help the anti-Castillo Forbes in three important regions belonging to Yara namely Valle De Oro, Madrugada, and El Este.

It is also revealed that he has performed many experiments on the local tobacco workers in camps in an attempt in creating the drug.
Keeping this in his mind, Dani goes to the research facility and kills everyone. In parallels in the El Este, a man called El Tigre is awaiting the arrival of Dani on top of a mountain which houses the old revolutionaries and Anton’s father. When he wants to help Libertad, the rest of the people aren’t willing so Dani starts showing them pictures of the bad working conditions on the farms to get them convinced to join.
As they attempt this, Dani came across an anarchist group of rebellious university students who fight in opposition to the naval commander of Yara named Admiral Benitez. Both groups can be seen uniting and storming the fort of Benitez to kill her and end her rule on seas owned by Yara. They can then start tracking Sean McKay, a businessman from Canada who can handle all Viviro imports and exports, and either make a deal or kill him.
After getting united with the anti-Castillo Forces under Libertad, Dani knows that Anton holds Clara at the villa of his private island in the presence of a parley. When Dani can be seen confronting him, Diego and he reveal the secret of Anton suffering from Leukaemia for 13 years, and the treatment of Viviro stopped working before 6 months.
Impressed by their feats of Dani, he wishes that Diego has a protector before his death. Anton wants Dani should become his assistant in return for his life with Clara. Juan also tried to assassinate Anton but chooses to shoot Diego in his head. Dani starts putting him out of his way.
Responding to the shooting, Anton decided to kill Clara and escape along with Diego to the city of Esperanza. Supported by the forces of anti-Castillo, Dani gets into the presidential palace of Anton all alone and also faces him in his office with a gun. Dani makes a promise to keep Diego protected, but Anton believes that Diego would be tortured because he has been tortured after his father’s death. He starts shooting at them before commuting suicide himself.
