In the epic tradition of the Godfather and Boardwalk Empire, Titans tells the story of Santos Garcia, a 2nd generation Mexican-American born in Chicago in the 1920s. When Santos turns 17, his father is murdered by racist Ku Klux Klansmen, and his mother is ill and dying, forcing him to retrun to  Mexico to bury her - even though he doesn't speak Spanish! Santos is adopted by a Chinese family living in Sonora, and his Chinese father teaches him the skills to become Mexico's first major opium producer. After the U.S. government secretly hires him to supply them with morphine in WWII, Santos gets a taste for power - and refuses to give up, even when two governments, corrput police officers and criminal syndicates all team up to destroy him. He's driven by a desire to give his family the good life he never had, and will do anything to protect them. But the ambitions of his son and grandson, trying to expand Santos's drug empire to new levels, ultimately brings tragedy to the family.

This is the story of the first Mexican American drug lord and the real story on the birth and evolution the international business of drugs from 1910 to 2000.
