Manuel López Vidal, played by Antonio de la Torre, is a beloved politician in his region: he's charismatic, enjoys a good social position, has a loving family and friends everywhere. In a political system in which corruption is the norm, when he tries to cover up his associate, his Party turns against him and he turns against them to take revenge. After May God Save Us, Sorogoyen and de la Torre team up again to bring us a tense and fast-paced thriller full of intrigue and corruption, a sad portrayal of Spanish politics and its corruption cases as well as that of a loving husband and father that is at the same time unscrupulous and manipulative in his determination to hold on to power.
