Cristi is a policeman as well as being whistleblower for the mafia. He travels from Romania to La Gomera in order to learn the gomero whistle. In Romania, he is under police patrol, but, using the ancestral canary way of communicating with the mafia, he pretends to be in touch with the mafia so as to get Zsolt out of jail, who is the only one to know where there are 30 million euros hidden.
