In a climate of tense competitiveness, fear and doubts will take over the participants, who fall into a state of paranoia and suspicion that it will reveal the lack of scruples of the candidates.
The Spanish Film Club show a selection of Spanish language films on the third Wednesday of the month at 5.30pm.
Films are in Spanish with English language subtitles.
