A sweltering, chaotic summer in Madrid. The city is swarming with security services and pilgrims awaiting the arrival of the Pope. Several older women have been brutally raped and murdered. The case landed in the hands of two odd detectives nobody wants for a partner. Luis is intelligent, reserved, and obsessed with his work. What’s more, he stutters. Javier is his exact opposite. Loquacious and charismatic, he is usually guided by his instinct, which regularly gets him into trouble. As time is ticking away, the duo needs to get into the murderer’s mind fast; a task in which they succeed all too well. This dark-humoured thriller is a suspenseful genre work, as well as sharp social criticism. It won the Jury Prize for Best Screenplay at the San Sebastián Film Festival, while Roberto Álamo (The Skin I Live In) won the Goya Award for the role of Javier.
