Matt's was first a cell split and divided inside a petri dish. Many consider him a monster. El Patron loves Matt because Matt is himself. As Matt struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by sinister characters, including El Patron's power-hungry family, and he is surrounded by bodyguards. Escape is his only chance. But escape is no guarantee of freedom, because Matt is marked in ways he doesn't even suspect.
