“And you, how long will it take you to kill yourself?”. That’s how forceful is the note Raquel finds in her purse on her first day at work. She is a literature teacher and has just accepted a substitution at her husband’s village institute. What she didn’t expect was to find out on the first day that her predecessor had committed suicide.
This is the starting point for El desorden que dejas, the story that in 2016 won the Primavera de Novela Award. Its author, Carlos Montero, is now in charge of converting his own story into a television series produced by Vaca Films and which will premiere on Netflix. Montero has a consolidated trajectory as a scriptwriter, has participated in series such as Física o Química, Al salir de clase, El comisario and more recently in the international success project ÉLITE. El desorden que dejas is his debut as a director.
El desorden que dejas is a thriller set in the rural environment of Galicia, a narrative that combines drama and suspense through two timelines that intertwine the story of its protagonists, who will be played by two actresses of renowned prestige. Inma Cuesta (Criminal, Arde Madrid, La novia) will be Raquel, the new teacher who has just arrived at the village’s high school; and the Goya winner Bárbara Lennie (Magical Girl, El Reino), will play Viruca, the teacher replaced by Raquel who had a tragic ending. These two teachers will be suddenly enveloped in a spiral of threats, lies and mysteries that will change their lives, and the lives of their families, forever.
The cast of El desorden que dejas is completed with Tamar Novas (Alta Mar, Fariña), who will play Germán, Raquel’s husband; Arón Piper (ÉLITE), who will give life to Iago, one of the high school students; and Roberto Enríquez (Vis a Vis, El Embarcadero), who will give life to Mauro, Viruca’s husband.
Silvia Quer and Roger Gual will join Carlos Montero in directing El desorden que dejas, Netflix’s first original production series to be shot in Galicia from October 21st.
