Storyline

Amaia Salazar, a police inspector in Pamplona, is directed by her superior to investigate a murder. The case concerns a teenage girl whose naked body was found at the side of a river close to Elizondo, Amaia's birth town, a rainy village surrounded by forests and mounts, full of local myths and ancient superstitions. Her marriage to James, an American sculptor, is falling apart due to her desire for a child, and despite wishing to never return to her family home, Amaia Salazar is forced to face the past and reconnect with her Aunt Engrasi and her sisters Flora and Rosaura. It seems that Amaia's instinct for criminal cases will be challenged, as more naked bodies of teenage girls are found in the forest. Trying to solve the case and discover the identity of the killer, Amaia must not only confront her own childhood trauma from the abuses of her mother, but also a growing suspicion that perhaps the killer is someone who is too close for comfort.

Trivia

Goofs

(at around 1h 1 min) During the Mass scene when Our Father (or Lord's Prayer) is prayed in Basque, the priest says "egin bedi zure gogoa lurrean bezala zeruan ere" which means "Thy will be done on heaven as it is in earth". He should have said "egin bedi zure gogoa zeruan bezala lurrean ere". The words "heaven" (zeru) and "earth" (lurra) are used in the wrong order. See more »

Excellent , just watch!
25 June 2018 | by ramirezrosieSee all my reviews

I wanna start by saying this is a very very good movie, it delivers in every sense. It keeps you attached to your seat and waiting to see what happens next. I believe the people who are scoring it low where spending more time on their phones than paying real attention to a good movie , missing the story. Suspense is there intriguing and definitely a well done story.
