With his family being threatened, Antonio decides to give the routes to Esteban, but then, in an explosive turn of events Simon will do the unthinkable and has to run away from Galicia for France. 
Under an alias, Simon will join the French Foreign Legion.  Sinking him further into depravity and taking him from the war torn jungles of Africa to the Balkans.
