The Invisible Guest

Synopsis: Adrián Doria, a wealthy businessman named Man of the Year due to his high-tech company and his trade agreements with the Asian market, meets Virginia Goodman, a veteran lawyer expert in witness preparation and judicial declaration, recommended by Adrián's lawyer Felix Leiva in order to create a credible defense. Arrested by the police in a mountain hotel room with the corpse of his lover at his side, photographer Laura Vidal, Adrián talks Virginia about the crime and his relationship with Laura, revealing that both suffered a car crash where a man called Daniel Garrido died, and how Laura manipulated Adrián to avoid the jail by Daniel's death. At the same time that Félix is looking for a clue that it could change the course of the events, Virginia and Adrián keep talking about the case but her, unconvinced of the Adrián's testimony, forces him to clear the dark points of his history, in a puzzle where the truth and the lie are easily exchangeable.

- Good evening.

- Good evening.

Mr. Doria?

Virginia Goodman.

I was sent by your lawyer,

Flix Leiva.

A pleasure.

- Come in.

- Thanks.

- Give me two minutes to

get dressed. - Sure. members of armed groups

that have demobilized

and are contributing

to the search for the missing.

In national news,

the main news this morning

is the funeral held in memory

of Laura Vidal,

the renowned photographer

and visual artist,

allegedly murdered by

her lover, Adrin Doria,

recently awarded

in the prestigious

European Awards for Innovation

and Business Development

as businessman of the year.

Doria, who recently made inroads

into the Asian market

with his company

Global Go Tech Media,

is pleading innocent and states

he is the victim of a plot.

I was expecting you later.

Yes. We've had a setback.

I tried to talk to Flix,

but his phone's off.

He's out of town.

But he said everything was

under control, that he had a lead...

- That would change everything, yes.

- Exactly.

That's what he said

when I last spoke to him.

But I didn't know then what I do now,

and what he still doesn't know.


It's very likely you'll be

called to testify tonight.


One of my courthouse sources says

the prosecutor has a last-minute witness

who could turn

your case around.

We don't know who it is yet,

but they're being taken to the court

to testify in three hours.

I told the truth.

Your testimony has holes,

and I need details.

Plausibility is based on details.

I can use them to convince

the world that you're innocent.

I assure you, I can do it.

So far I've never lost

a case before any judge.

But I need you to cooperate.

The police have turned this place

into a cell, I'm watched 24 hours a day.

Don't you think if had anything to add

I would've done it by now?

They're going to request

your immediate arrest, Mr. Doria.

We have 180 minutes

to start over,

so I advise you to stop whining

and let's get to work.

Right, let's go back to the start.

What were you and the deceased

doing at that hotel?

We were told to go there.

We'd been seeing each other

for a few months.

Someone was trying

to blackmail us.

We were following

their instructions.

They wanted 100,000 Euros.

It's better to buy someone's silence

than face a million-dollar divorce.

I never wanted to divorce Sonia,

I love her.

Why that hotel, 200 miles away

from your lives?

I don't know.

Weren't you surprised they chose

somewhere so out of the way?

Who cares which hotel it was?

Had you and your lover

been there before?

The problem here is someone

pinned a murder on me.

Everything is important, Mr. Doria.

But it's alright,

first let's talk about

the message on your phone.

We'd been waiting

for two hours when it came.

Something wrong?

He has your cell phone.

He just sent a message

from your cell phone.



It's a trap.

Let's go.


I was unconscious

for a few minutes.

And when I woke up...

the nightmare began.

What's the first

thing you remember?

Banging on the door.


Are you alright?


Open the door.

Out of the way.


Do you hear me?


We know you're in there!

Open the door!

No, no.

Laura! Help!

Help, please!



Get up!

Hands up! Get up!

There was someone in the room.

Hands where I can see them.

I didn't do anything.

Hands up!

- I didn't do anything.

- Get down!

- There was someone else here.

- On the floor!

Don't resist.

Everybody out!

The police report says that

witnesses heard screams,

but didn't see anyone leave the room...
