Manuel Lopez-Vidal (Antonio de la Torre) is a regional Spanish politician whose loyalty to his party has been rewarded with a place at the table and an extravagant lifestyle. When a newspaper threatens to expose the party’s corruption, Manuel finds himself the scapegoat. Faced with destruction, he fights back by whistleblowing to the press. A clever, twisting plot and rapid-fire dialogue create a rollercoaster ride in which the political old school is pitted against a young pretender brought in to try and clean things up from Madrid. Sorogoyen’s high-speed political thriller will leave you barely drawing breath. FC
