Emilio Barrero Sanz, a 40-year-old economist working at the Bank of Spain is a happy man: he likes his job, his wife and son adore him, he lives in a nice small and nice chalet on the outskirts of Madrid and lives a quiet and pleasant life. But a threat hangs over his happiness and that of his family: his whole life is a lie.

Can a man make his life a lie for almost 20 years without his wife, his family, or his closest friends ever suspecting it?
That is the first question that came to my mind when Pedro Costa told me about the idea of making a film inspired by the case of Jean-Claude Romand, a Frenchman who in 93 killed his entire family, and through lies went undiscovered for 20 years.
