synopsis

After six years of receiving no news from my friend Francisco del Pueblo, otherwise known as “Paco”, I came across a full-page photograph of him in the Sunday supplement of the newspaper El País. “From hell” was the large headline. Paco had been arrested in Pakistan with 12 kilos of heroin and sent to a prison in Karachi. There, converted to Islam, he awaited sentence: in the best of cases, life imprisonment; in the worst of cases, the death penalty. After a few failed attempts to communicate with him, one day I finally received a call: “Come and see me,” he said. “And I’ll tell you the whole story.”
