In 2006, Panama’s health system by mistake manufactured and distributed over 200 thousand bottles of common cold medication with a substance called diethylene glycol, used in the automobile industry and that caused massive poisoning, deaths, and serious diseases. The case involves companies from China, Spain and Panama.

A LA DERIVA (DRIFTING AWAY) portrays the lives of Iris, Milagros y Briseida, three women affected by this poison, both physically and emotionally.
