In a month where the television audience begins to grow due to the end of summer, this selection of new releases includes high-quality comedy and drama Locos al Poder, directed by Juan Zelaya and starring Elmis Castillo, tells the life of Ermisendo, a young man who lives in a forgotten indigenous region, who discovers that his biological father is the presidential candidate Juan Carlos Kelqueyec. Through Ermisendo, Kelqueyec will try to sympathize with the people and win in the polls, in crazy and hilarious circumstances. There will also be dramas for the audience such as 15 Hours and La Boda de Rosa. 15 Hours presents Aura and Manuel, the seemingly perfect marriage that hides a terrible secret: he has abused her for years, until one day, fed up with suffering, Aura gathers the courage necessary to ask for help. La Boda de Rosa tells the life of Rosa, who is about to turn 45 and realizes that she has always lived for others. She decides to leave everything behind and take control of her life to fulfill her dream of starting a new business. Finally, the movie Immersion directed by Nicolás Postiglione with Consuelo Carreño, Alfredo Castro, Mariela Mignot describes the circumstances of Ricardo and his two daughters, who while sailing, come across a group of fishermen whose boat is about to sink. However, Ricardo suspects the fishermen and refuses to help them, even when his daughters insist that he do so.
The Belén Rueda cycle shows the acting virtues of María Belén Rueda García-Porrero, a Spanish actress who was born in the city of Madrid but lived her youth in the province of Alicante, where her family moved to try to alleviate the asthmatic disease of one of her sisters. The actress, with a career that includes more than 15 feature films, television programs and series, has been awarded with Goya Awards, Fotogramas de Plata, Awards from the Union of Actors and Actresses, Feroz Awards and others. La Noche que mi Madre mató a mi Padre (comedy), Ismael (drama), El Pacto (suspense, horror), No Tengas Miedo (drama) and No Dormiras (suspense, horror) confirm why Belén Rueda is one of the most outstanding and versatile stars of the filmography in Spanish.
