The four cops of Unit 7 have a tough mission: to eradicate the most dangerous trafficking network of the city of Seville before the opening of the 1992 Seville World Exhibition, and bring an end to the corrosive power that has taken hold of the streets. Among them are Angel (Mario Casas), the leader of the unit, a young officer aspiring to become detective, and Rafael (Antonio de la Torre), a violent yet efficient cop. Over the course of their years-long mission, the two officers will take opposite directions: Angel's ambition will lead him to seek results by any means necessary, while Rafael's character will change when he meets a charismatic woman.
Unit 7 is a naturalistic and stylish crime thriller thoroughly committed to all its characters, both male and female. In his fifth feature film, director Alberto Rodriguez (7 Virgins) provides a mix of violence and pure emotion, balancing the most spectacular chases with an intimate portrayal of human nature. Unit 7 deals with truth, lies, and corruption, along with confronting one's personal conscience, all supported by a fantastic cast.
