Michael Morey was a music-loving hippie but when he learned he and his girlfriend were expecting a baby, Michael agreed to smuggle cocaine from Ecuador to Europe to earn some extra money. Upon landing in Madrid, a customs officer inspects his bags and Michael is busted. On top of a nine-year prison sentence, he receives a letter from his girlfriend saying she lost the baby and is leaving him. All hope isn't lost, though, as a new Spanish love and hope for freedom are in sight.
