PlotEdit

Olmos is a corporal of the Civil Guard's Public Order and Prevention service who works in the station of his birthplace, Ezcaray, a small peaceful town in La Rioja. Robles is a lieutenant of the Rapid Reaction Group, one of the most prestigious units of the Civil Guard, an urban and modern officer. They see themselves forced to work together if they want to solve the international case which, as luck would have it, has united them in this town in La Rioja, the serial murder of a group of mercenaries. They are polar opposites, but together they make up a great team.

In season 2, both guards have to work together in order to solve another important crime, which includes the death of Robles' parents, the assassination attempt of a Spanish high-ranked NATO politician and an international corruption plot related to an important arms trade enterprise.

ProductionEdit

Filming of the series began in July 2015. Indoor scenes were filmed in studio in Madrid. Outdoor scenes were filmed on location in Ezcaray and other locations in La Rioja: Logroño, Haro, San Millán de la Cogolla, Nájera and Zaldierna.
