Storyline

The four attractive founders of a highly successful company are in a bind. The Spanish equivalent of the IRS are investigating them, and are soon to find that they have been guilty of a massive tax fraud. But there is a way out, one of them needs to take the fall, confessing to everything and going to prison for seven years. Not surprisingly, none of them want to go to prison. They decide to hire a mediator, to work out whom will take the fall for the other three. Written by Chris

Realistic, tightly-written little drama
4 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Imagine you are one of four partners of a highly successful technology firm. Imagine that you become frustrated with the government spending of your hard-earned tax money in your country, Spain, and decide to overcome the problem by committing tax fraud and stashing away millions in secure Swiss accounts. Now, the Spanish tax authorities smell a rat and are about to pounce on your clandestine accounts et al. You are all certain to go to jail for at least seven years. But. There is a way out. If one of you takes the fall, not all need to be imprisoned. One can save the other three.

How do you decide who makes the sacrifice?

This is the premise of the hot-off-the-press drama 7 Años. It premiered on the 28th of October, and thank you Netflix for bringing us this first original European Spanish production.

So, the four friends and business partners are Luis, Veronica, Marcel, and Carlos. Rather astutely, they hire a mediator to help them solve their conundrum. (Jose the mediator has a rather thorny task, obviously, but he's offered a cushy sum for his troubles.) The very fact that the four have hired him at all tells us something about them, and as we progress in this tight 77-minute drama, we see more and more of these characters.
