La piel del tambor

La piel del tambor - The man from Rome


Vatican City, 1995. A computer hacker breaks into the Pope's personal computer, leaving him a message claiming that the Nuestra Señora de las Lágrimas (Church of Our Lady of Tears) kills to defend itself. Intrigued, the Holy Father orders an investigation into the matter. Monsignor Spada assigns the mission to his best agent, the priest Quart, who has long experience in the dark affairs of the Holy See. Meanwhile, in Seville, the aristocratic Macarena Bruner, a beautiful divorcee who owns the rights to the land where Nuestra Señora de las Lágrimas stands, scandalises the city with her inappropriate love affairs with a flamenco dancer. As she flirts around Seville, she becomes a leading member of a group resisting the demolition of the church.
