Manuel López-Vidal (a superb Antonio de la Torre) is an influential politician ready to make the leap to the big leagues when a leak involves him in a corruption scandal. But when the party closes ranks against him, Manuel finds himself without power and without friends. But he is not going down alone. “The Realm” is a suspenseful, character-driven political thriller ripped from today’s headlines.
