One misty dawn, in a quiet fishing port in northwest Spain, the body of a sailor washes up in the harbour. Detective Inspector Leo Caldas (Goya Award Winner Carmelo Gómez, El Método) and his assistant Rafael Estévez (Antonio Garrido) are called in from the nearby city of Vigo to sign off on what appears to be a suicide; but details soon come to light that turn this into a complex murder investigation. Uncovering the truth, however, is not easy when the villagers are so suspicious of outsiders. As Caldas delves into the maritime life of the village, he uncovers a disturbing decade-old case of a shipwreck and two mysterious disappearances.
Based on Domingo Villar’s best-selling novel Death on a Galician Shore (and adapted for the screen by the author himself) this atmospheric mystery immerses its audience in the day to day life of Galicia, slowly drawing them into a tangled net of superstition, myth, lies and betrayal.
