La Isla Mínima

Marshland

 
Two adolescents disappear from a town deep in the Guadalquivir wetlands. Two detectives are sent from Madrid; both use very different methods and are not precisely going through the best moment in their professional careers. A strike threatens the rice harvest and complicates the investigations of the two policemen intent on solving the case as quickly as possible. However, they discover evidence that many more youngsters could have disappeared.
