Human beings have always been fascinated by the lives of those individuals who have succeeded in our society. "Pablo Escobar, Angel or Demon?" is the story of one of these people, Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria, the biggest drug lord of all time.

A man whose criminal mind verged on being genius, a man who used all his creativity to build an evil empire of terror, death and blood, but at the same time, a man who was able to shine and seed a light of hope in the lives of the most vulnerable people which saw in him a kind of God. A biopic that shows for the first time the key players in the life of Pablo Escobar.

Accounts from John Jairo Velasques a.k.a Popeye, currently in a maximum security prison, one of his closest friends and collaborators, testimonies from his family, victims and enemies; and from the barrio those who saw and still see a great man in him. Through all of them "Pablo Escobar, Angel or Demon?" gives us the chance to see a more human and realistic portrait of the man who was able to bear all the good and all the evil... and use it at his will.
