The House of the Flowers

The House of the Flowers was originally a popular comedy-drama series but now a movie version is set for release next week. The synopsis reads: "While waiting to be intervened on a delicate surgery, Delia reveals a secret to Paulina: in her parents' room there is a hiding place that protects, among other things, a family treasure and the evidence against Agustín Corcuera, recently absolved for the murder of Pato.

"By tricking them, Paulina convinces her brothers to outwit the security measures of their ex-home and recover the treasure. The love for her nanny, and the possibility of avenging their family, will make the de la Mora break all rules to achieve this seemingly impossible mission. Out on 23 July.
