The second film directed by screenwriter Luis Marías, nominated for the Goya Prize for the libretto of ‘Todo poor la pasta.’ A thriller selected at the Gijón International Film Festival that depicts the terrible consequences of the actions by the terrorist group ETA. A police officer suffers an attack in which his wife dies, and his daughter loses her legs. Eleven years later, he has not been able to overcome the tragic event and only lives to fulfill his revenge. José Coronado excels here in the role of one of those tormented characters that he has always portrayed so well, as can be seen in Víctor Erice’s latest film, ‘Close Your Eyes’.
Carlos is a policeman. One day, a bomb blows up in car: he is not harmed but his wife is killed and his 10-year-old daughter loses her legs. Eleven years later he is a different man. He has moved to Barcelona, found a job in a private security company and his daughter seems to have overcome the traumatic experience, although there are still some traces left. After years of counselling, he appears to be a man who has been given a second chance in life. But nothing could be farther from the truth. In the deepest corner of his heart there is only one feeling which consumes all others: Hate.
