The Spanish deep South, 1980. A series of brutal murders of adolescent girls in a remote and forgotten town bring together two disparate characters - both detectives in the homicide division - to investigate the cases. With deep divisions in their ideology, detectives Juan and Pedro must put aside their differences if they are to successfully hunt down a killer who for years has terrorized a community in the shadow of a general disregard for women rooted in a misogynistic past.
‘Southern Gothic Spanish-style in a gripping detective thriller set in the slough of the country’s post-Franco ‘Forgetting’. Sight and Sound
‘Alberto Rodriguez’s satisfyingly atmospheric neo-noir is steeped in a brooding transitional world of distrust and perversion, though frustration over plot holes could hinder international success’. Variety
“A visually striking noir thriller set against a backdrop of sex, drugs and political intrigue”. Montreal Gazette
