   With the help of spy agencies, the brothers manage to connect with RT and the Russian government. They discover the confinement and achieve a communication with Jorge, monitored by RT. The brothers promise to influence Jorge to stabilize his character and do his job, if he gets out of prison. Failing that, they would denounce what little he knows on social media.
The Russians laugh at this, but they agree.

This not only shocks Jorge… soon his brothers suffer mysterious tragedies again. Frightened by this, Jorge's mother, his children, and his ex-wife, hide in a remote place in Mexico. There they live in fear of their environment, as unknown as Russia, although protected by certain friends.

   Dodging the mysterious attacks, the brothers turn to new connections, this time from US agencies in Puerto Rico. However, the sensitivity of the general relationship with Russia makes it very difficult for them to support them. Only some agents who know Jorge, lend themselves to participate unofficially, using cyber hackers in Puerto Rico to establish encrypted communications with Russia and press the release of Jorge.

   After months of uncertainty, the guards roughly drag Jorge out of his apartment. They blindfold him and take him for hours in a mystery car. They interrogate him and threaten with enigmatic speeches until they come to a stop. They take him down in a hangar area and two people in military clothing remove the blindfold and take him inside the building complex.

This turns out to be the back door of the Moscow airport where with one last threat to keep what happened a secret, they give him his passport and a ticket to the USA with which Jorge can return home. Excited, Jorge begins the walk to the plane. Thousands of flashes pass through his memory. Suddenly he turns to look back. The guards are gone. Jorge changes his gaze to one full of courage and steps out of the line to get on the plane.
