The Mole Agent

G Documentary


Rumors of abuse and neglect in a Chilean nursing home prompt a private investigation agency to hire eighty-something Sergio as an inside agent.

After admitting himself to the home, Sergio must deal with technologically complicated spy gadgets, his daughter’s reservations about his new career, and the persistent advances of several female residents who are quick to notice the dapper “younger” man. But as his investigation deepens, Sergio realises that the story he is uncovering is much bigger than he thought.
