La Zona

The barely regained order of a city three years after a nuclear catastrophe is turned inside out when a mutilated body is found.

The disastrous meltdown of a nuclear power plant in Northern Spain created a contaminated no-go zone and left the nearby provincial city and inhabitants in a state of shock and mourning. One of the victims is police inspector Hector Uria's 20 year-old son Fede. While the city prepares to feed the media with good news for the commemoration ceremony, the report of a mutilated body found in a warehouse proves almost as contagious as the radioactive fallout itself, especially when more mysterious killings occur. Hector's search for the murderer takes him deep into the no-go zone, where he uncovers a smuggling racket controlled by the decontamination company with ties to the political authorities. It is also a journey into his own past as the sole survivor of those who went in to save others three years ago – a journey undertaken also by his doctor and public health official Julia, his wife Marta and his daughter Ester, each having to confront their very own inner demons on the way.

Press Quotes

“While Chernobyl seems overly staged though it offers the thrill of being based on true events, even La Zona's man-eating zombies are subtle in their presentation. This laid-back approach and apparent pragmatism are what make the series so impressive. […] For ZDF Neo, this is the first co-production with a Southern European partner, you'll want more of that.”
