El Mundo

On the island of La Gomera, the second smallest of Spain’s Canary Islands, the body of a young man is found amid the thick forest fog. The case closes quickly with the accusation of a local politician who is exonerated in the subsequent trial.

Three years later when new evidence emerges, Civil Guards Sergeant Bevilacqua (Quim Gutiérrez, Three Many Weddings SFF2014) and his assistant, Corporal Chamorro (Aura Garrido, Stockholm SFF14) arrive from the mainland to revive the investigation, accompanied by Corporal Anglada (Verónica Echegui, Let Yourself Go! Opening Night, Italian Film Festival 2017) who was the last one to see the young man alive. All the clues still point to the politician, but the detectives must overcome the wall of secrets and lies put up by the island’s inhabitants. This includes their local contact Lieutenant Nava (Roberto Álamo, May God Save Us SFF17), who begrudges Bevilacqua and Chamorro reopening his closed case.

Adapted from Lorenzo Silva’s best-selling novel, which was the third outing for his Bevilacqua and Chamorro characters, this is a gripping Spanish noir that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
