Told with pitch-black humour, this is the story of an unlikely hero ridding the world of unwanted criminals. Maiquel is an ordinary guy who wants an ordinary life - wife, kids and a nice house.

Suddenly becoming the hero of a whole neighbourhood, Maiquel struggles to deal with his new-found notoriety.
