Básculas Blanco, a Spanish company in a provincial Spanish town, awaits a committee visit to decide whether they merit a local Business Excellence award.

‘’With a style reminiscent of the Coen brothers’ trademark cinematic sarcasm, León de Aranoa artfully spins a story (which he also wrote) of bad behaviour trying to pass itself off as good.’’ - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
