Paulo Duarte dies. An apparent suicide that does not convince anyone - neither the police nor his sister Teresa, who decides to leave her life in Lisbon to find out what really happened to her brother. Teresa is not mistaken and Paul's death hides much more than it seems - an arms trafficking network led by Mauro Galdón, Teresa's successful businessman and godfather. The unexpected death of her brother causes Teresa to see her life change suddenly. Unable to wait for the results of the investigation, he moves from Lisbon to Vigo, to work at his brother's old company and investigate what happened to him. The events led to months of coordinated investigation between the judicial police of Spain and Portugal, under the watchful eye of Interpol.Written by
As a Portuguese, I'm used to the boring, repetitive and cringy TV shows/soap-operas produced and broadcasted in Portugal.
"Auga Seca" was a great surprise for me. It has a good, interesting and coherent script and a unexpected ending for the story. Honestly, I believe this miniseries's quality is not that far from the much more expensive and popular American/British crime dramas such as Sharp Objects or Broadchurch.
HBO had made a good decision by deciding to broadcast this miniseries. I would recommend you to watch "Auga Seca", especially if you're Portuguese,as I don't remember the last time a TV show this good was produced in Portugal.
