Inspectors Velarde and Alfaro must find what appears to be a serial killer. This hunt against the clock will make them realize something they'd never thought about: neither one of them is that different from the killer.
Antonio de la Torre,
A hard-working single mother and wife of a getaway driver who is about to be released is approached by an unassuming and gentle man, completely unaware though of his inscrutable and utterly impelling motives.

Timely film looks at political corruption in Spain through the eyes of the accused
On a weekly basis a new exposé hits the headlines of Spanish paper, detailing the political corruption of members of the dominant party, the PP. This film tells the story of what corruption looks like from within the ranks. Connecting the structural and habitual conditions that allow a corrupt government to plainly blame a single individual.
We follow the story of governmental functionary as he tries to clear his name of the scandal that has been allocated to him.
Wonderful script, amazing editing. Seamless acting and exquisite steadycam use *(maybe over use?). It's a classic chase film, only seen from the backseat while the driver obscures the car up ahead.
