Bob's imagination
“Smokescreen” takes place in the warring world of the Mexican drug cartels and their murky relationship with the DEA.

Good cop, deep cover DEA agent Dan Aguirre sees everything as black or white. He gets caught in the vendetta between the El Rey and Gigante cartels and is forced to go on the run with 2 million dollars of El Rey money meant for corrupt public official and police.

Dan is cut loose and is left to fend for himself when his dirty agent handler Lou Jarman sides with the Gigante cartel and he’s declared a rogue agent, barely escaping Mexico City with his life.

The boys save Pilar from Gigante’s clutches and using the money as bait Dan sets up a sting during Oaxaca’s Day of the Dead celebrations to entrap the corrupt officials and redeem his career only to realize everything is grey in this world.
