Soon we will announce the rest of the protagonists of the series.
To Capelada. An ancient land, with high cliffs above the sea, where horses live free. Except one day: that of the rapa das bestas. The rapa it is a tradition that synthesizes the beauty and the wildness of a territory that is generally quiet, but which is going to be the scene of a crime. Searching for the murderer of Amparo Seoane, the town’s mayor, will be the common objective of Tomás – a frustrated teacher – and Maite, a sergeant of the Civil Guard. And it will become something more: a good reason to live.
The series according to its creators
«Rapa is a thriller. It is the story of a crime, and of the reasons why someone kills and why someone investigates. It is a story that brings together a series of characters that we were attracted to meet: the frustrated teacher who feels like a stimulus to have witnessed a murder; the sergeant of the judiciary who is in his territory when he is hunting the culprit; the men and women involved, a human group in which it is not easy to distinguish who is guilty and who is the victim.
We think the story for a magical place, where sea and land, wind and calm intermingle, the territory that goes from the Sierra da Capelada, on the Atlantic coast, to Ferrol. A place where everything can change around every corner ».
