Produced by Televisió de Catalunya and Focus with the collaboration of Animals Films
This project intends to turn Desclassificats, the play, into an audiovisual story for TV. Desclassificats, which opened in La Villarroel 24th of March 2011, is a political thriller which describes the thoughts of a journalist who has to choose between professional ethic and personal interests against a corrupted political class.
A prestigious journalist faces the most important challenge of his career: the President of the Government has been allegedly involved in an aberrant affair and she interviews him to find out the truth. However, the wily President’s Press Secretary will not make it easy. Some minutes before the interview, the protagonist will be submitted to a Machiavellian game of mistakes and pitfalls that will question their ethical and professional principles. The truth? That’s what it looks like. But perhaps by the end of the story we unexpectedly discover a new unexpected truth. Not about the President, but a new truth in itself.
