Levante (Spain), 1992, the summer is coming to an end in a coastal town when three 15-year-old girls, Sandra, Eva, and Malena, disappear without a trace from a nightclub. When the police investigation appears to be taking the wrong direction, Javi, Sandra's younger brother, takes things into his own hands, along with Quino and Álvaro, his best friends, and Zeta, the class bully. Together they discover the girls are being held by something not of this world…

Originally produced for Movistar+ and now streaming on HBO Max.

I'm parking this post here while I check it out. As ever, I do not mind spoiler-y discussion, since that is specifically what FF is for.

I'm most of the way through the first episode and at this point, my first blush reaction is that it's like a sci-fi version of Broadchurch. There's a lot of crying in this small town.

I'm two episodes in and liking this better.

Revised comp:
Broadchurch, but otherworldly kidnappers instead of sex predators, investigated by Stranger Things type kids... who are ghosts now.

This has great vibes and large plot holes. I enjoyed it though.
