Synopsis

Spanish political thriller based on the true story of secret agent Mikel Lejarza, aka 'El Lobo' ('The Wolf'), who infiltrated the Basque terrorist group ETA between 1973 and 1975. Lejarza contributed to the fall of a quarter of the terrorist activists of the organisation, including several Special Forces members and some top-level figures of the group, and destabilised the terrorist organization at a time when its actions where becoming a perfect justification for the most conservative arm of the Franco regime to take full powers and stop the democratic process in Spain. The film was awarded two Goya awards in its native Spain and nominated for a further three.
