The spy who charmed me

In order to determine whether an old woman is being abused at her nursing home, private eye Rómulo hires 83 year old Sergio to go undercover. Outfitted with hidden cameras and recording equipment, Sergio springs into action – but Rómulo has not taken his immense likeability into account. Finding himself the center of attention, Sergio struggles to carry out his investigation. Using its Hollywood-like premise as a springboard, THE MOLE AGENT is an unforgettable and irresistibly charming documentary about ageing, loneliness and human connections.
