Gabriel (played by Grao, currently also starring in Almodóvar's Julieta), has to put his promising political career on hold when a mass suicide of members of a sect takes place and his little sister, Cordelia, whom he hasn't seen for years, seems to be involved. With the help of his sister's former lover, Helena, and the police inspector, Santana, he'll try to find Cordelia and the sect's leader. The beautiful cinematography of Javier Agirre captures the extraordinary landscape of the Canary Islands, helping to reflect the emotional state of the characters. The thriller is based on Lucía Etxebarría's book El contenido del silencio.
