Description: Captain Pantaleon Pantoja, an outstanding, exemplary, happily married army man, is commissioned to organize The Visitors Service, an ambulatory prostitute system created to placate the sexual needs of soldiers assigned to distant posts in the Amazon Jungle. Pantaleon carries out this mission with obsessive efficiency and it becomes a resounding success. The appearance in his life of La Colombiana; a subduing mysterious woman; and becoming the victim of extortion by "El Sinchi"; and influential and corrupt journalists; muddle Captain Pantaleon Pantoja's objectives and mark the beginning of many conflicts that outline the story.
