In this wry and timely political comedy of manners, Martín Marchand (Uruguayan TV star Diego De Paula), the son of a wealthy businessman, retreats to his lavish, secluded family estate with his most trusted confidants to start prepping his candidacy for office. In order to distance himself from the reputation of his father, he decides to form a new party that speaks for the common man, and hires a team of PR hotshots to craft his new image. Soon after their arrival, however, the creatives assigned to form his media presence begin to elicit Martín's suspicion, and paranoia slowly takes hold.
