Six riot police people execute an eviction in the centre of Madrid that gets complicated and ends up with a death. An Internal Affairs team will be in charge of investigating the facts and the six riot police people will face a manslaughter change. The group of agents will look for a way out on their own that ends up separating them and further complicating the situation. Laia, one of the Internal Affairs agents, becomes so obsessed with the case that she will discover that after the ill-fated eviction there is much more. First two episodes of the Spanish tv series Antidisturbios (Riot Police), celebrate critical and audience success.

“The story is what defines us as a society, and we have the responsibility to continue telling stories. But, above all, we have the burden to remind others that these stories serve for something more than mere entertainment, that they serve to reflect, to show other points of view, other worlds, other people, to make us feel, laugh or cry, be afraid and get excited. Those are the stories that are worthwhile, that make us better people. Getting there is another story, but first you have to try it.”
