At the same time, a young Majorcan, Sebastian, is known on the island as the biggest smuggler. He moves to Cuba to escape from problems with justice.

Already as an important member of the organisation, Torretta moves to Cuba for the most important meeting that the gangsters hold at the end of the 40s. There he meets Sebastian and they both join forces. Thanks to Sebastian’s nazi contacts on his island of origin they begin to import to Cuba surplus morphine for the wounded of the Second World War. From morphine, into heroine, Torretta and Sebastian begin trafficking in the United States.
