A Mexican prisoner escapes through the jungles of Chiapas crossing paths with a secret agent named Lobo. Lobo has a crisis on his hands, and only Julio the ex-con can help, based on his past spy experience. Lobo gives Julio money, cars and everything else he needs to travel the world and rescue the very beautiful Ambassador's daughter who has been taken by the ETA terrorist group. Lobo changes Julio's life and even his name to "Fuego" which means "fire" and that is exactly what Fuego does--he sets the world on fire as he takes out anyone in the way of getting what he needs to erase his criminal past. Fuego stops at nothing to save the innocent girl but as he is about to rescue her, someone betrayes him and Fuego sets out for revenge.
