Regional politician Manuel López-Vidal (Antonio de la Torre) isn't above slipping his hand into the cookie jar - after all, it has given his wife and daughter a better life than they would have had otherwise, and corruption is practically a tradition in Spanish politics, leading all the way up to regional president Jose Luis Frias (José María Pou). But when newly appointed anticorruption hotshot Alvarado has López-Vidal arrested on money laundering and embezzlement charges, the politician quickly realizes his fellow swamp rats have made him their scapegoat, lambasting their colleague before the cameras while continuing their shady dealings. Now a persona non grata with nothing left to lose, cornered animal López-Vidal races to beat them at their own game, sending him on a breathless pursuit - where he discovers that corruption goes deeper than he ever thought possible - in this raw, heart-pounding new thriller from writer Isabel Peña and director Rodrigo Sorogoyen (May God Save Us).
