Co-production between Portugal and Spain, “A Balada da Praia dos Cão” is an absorbing and skillful police film, with a sinuous political and passionate atmosphere, about the case of a political prisoner in the sixties who appears dead and gives rise to a complex police investigation , not only to determine the identity of the killer but also the nature of the crime.

Fonseca e Costa thus signs a beautiful and intelligent film, whose highlight goes to an international cast, where the names of Raul Solnado and the Spanish Assumpta Serna are counted in the main roles.
