Driven, motor-mouthed and smug, Manuel Lopez-Vidal (de la Torre) is a Spanish politician whose high-class lifestyle is based on enabling policies that include high-level government corruption. His calculating facilitation of illegal activities has steadily boosted him up the ladder and provided a very comfortable lifestyle for himself, his devoted spouse and their teen daughter. When, on the verge of his huge promotion, a leaked tape exposes Manuel’s dealings to the public eye, he meets the cruel underbelly of his own system. The event reveals to him a larger realm of those even guiltier, not to mention more cold-blooded, than he, and radically shifts Manuel’s role from facilitator to whistle-blower. What follows is a tale that overflows with intrigue and suspense, before culminating with a confrontational end to this surprising, serpentine tale.

“A necessary confrontation with the last years of corruption in Spain.” - Cinemanía (Spain)
