Corruption, greed, risk, and hypocrisy – these are the common themes of the political world, skilfully explored in this high-powered and universally relevant Spanish thriller. Those in power will do everything to hold on to it; those still morally untainted have the arduous task of holding them to account. Manuel is a crooked politician enjoying a life of freedom and luxury fuelled by bribes, extortion, and other unscrupulous behaviour. When leaked information about him threatens the foundation of his entire party, Manuel decides that if he has to go down, he’ll take everyone with him. Exciting and unexpected – prepare to be chilled, thrilled, and repelled.
