From the award-winning team behind the worldwide box office hit Marshland (La Isla Mínima) comes SMOKE & MIRRORS, directed by Alberto Rodríguez, currently Spain’s hottest director. Based on a true story, SMOKE & MIRRORS is as intriguing as it is thrilling. This suspense-spy movie from an internationally acclaimed helmer is aimed at audiences around the globe.
Francisco Paesa — ex-secret agent for the Spanish government and the man responsible for the most important operation against the Basque terrorist group ETA — is framed by his own government and forced to leave the country. When he is finally able to return to Spain, he is broke and his personal life is falling apart. It is then he receives a visit from Luis Roldan, the powerful former Commissioner of Police who offers him one million dollars to help him safeguard twelve million dollars that were embezzled from the budget he used to control. Paesa’s acute mind will plan revenge in order to seize Roldan’s money, fooling an entire country in a brilliant and intricate operation worthy of the best illusionist.
