The father’s law (La ley del padre)

Even if they willing to kill, they will always be proper people.

The Gómez-Arjona’s are the owners of Grupo9, one of the most important media conglomerates in Spain. When Arturo -a family man, and the president of Grupo9­- suffers a poisoning attack, there is a huge revolt to try to find out who is behind this attack. His kids can’t help but wonder who would have inherited the company, had their father died.

This worry adds to the distress that Arturo is suffering ever since a big multinational company began to show interest in buying his business.

There is a reason to believe that each one of his children may be behind the food poisoning attack. Alonso is the oldest brother and therefore, he is bound to inherit the company.  He became tetraplegic after being in a brutal car accident 20 years ago, and, since then, he is anxious for his father’s power. The fact that Arturo is trying to sell the business to a multinational company puts him in a very difficult position.

Mencía is Arturo’s second daughter. Behind her image of a snobbish and superficial woman, concerned about the number of followers she has on social networks and never missing a high society event, she hides her ambition to be the one chosen as her father’s successor at the head of Grupo 9.

Roberto, also known as “Bobby”, is third in the line of succession. The fact that he is homosexual has always been a problem for his father. However, with time, he has developed a whole strategy against his siblings to be “the chosen one”.

Sonia is the younger sister and, although many years have passed since her mother Adelaida was murdered, she has only just returned to Madrid to reopen the investigation of the murder, something that Arturo wants to stop at all costs. Sonia has her grandfather Don Ernesto on her side. She also has Josan Caramuel, Adelaida’s secret lover, on her side. The two will end up having an affair.

The suspects are being surveilled by a paparazzi who is willing to sell his soul to the devil in exchange of a good sum of money.
