The adaptation of Ignacio Martínez de Pisón's novel of the same name was the surprise hit with Spanish audiences in 2018.
Ambitious Justo Gil seeks his fortune in 1960s Barcelona. By selling typewriters, he wants to earn money for the treatment of his sick mother. He uses all the means at his disposal and also seeks divine assistance, which, he still has to repay, quite profanely, with earthly currency.
In Francoist Spain, Barcelona seems to be an island of freedom and opportunity for the young man. And his charismatic appearance opens him the doors and hearts of the upper class.
"A series that came without warning and became a jewel that everyone should enjoy." (cinemagavia.es)
