Description

In the stifling summer of 2011, Madrid is gripped by anti-austerity protests, while the city’s police apparatus is gearing up for a visit from the Pope. To make matters worse, a serial killer is murdering old women at an alarming pace, and the violence is palpable. Enter Alfaro and Velarde, two detectives who, together, seem to understand their perp as well as they know themselves. Alfaro possesses an uncontrollable temper, while Velarde is introverted, with a slight stutter, both of which mask a darker side. As the pair draws nearer and nearer to capturing their suspect, and the Pope’s visit looms, both Madrid and the Catholic church have their veneers peeled away to reveal an ugly side that both would prefer hidden.

“We wanted to talk about violence,” director Rodrigo Sorogoyen said to Variety, “violence within human beings but also the violence of modern societies, and cities where violent behaviors occur.”
