Episode 1

In the presence of creator, director and screenwriter Rafael Cobos and actress María León.

Lola is a high-class Sevillian mother who attends the drift of her youngest son towards the obscurities of a radical group. In an attempt to understand and recover her son, Lola will relate to   Maru, a mother of a different social class who lives in a similar situation to hers. Rafa Cobos debuts in direction with the adaptation of the novel by Rosario Izquierdo, a sociologist known for researching women’s social exclusion.

Note from the artistic direction
The series – adapted from the book of the same name by Rosario Izquierdo – takes us on the frantic journey of a mom trying to find and reconnect with her son, radicalized after joining a neo-Nazi group. The camera, always moving, on the lookout, follows Lola closely across Sevilla. Gripping.
