The series is produced by Parox – who already received a Prix Europa Award for best miniseries for ‘Invisible Heroes’ in 2019 –, in association with Mediterráneo Media (Spain) and Aleph (Argentina) and premiered last September in Chile. The series had its international premiere in a screening at San Sebastian Film Festival and will be broadcasted by Spain’s RTVE very soon.
