The reasons why you shouldn’t miss The Mess You Leave Behind
El desorden que dejas, or The Mess You Leave Behind, is not the series you should leave behind in 2020. Thrillers are my thing, and I just cannot wait 4 more weeks until the series comes out. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one, honestly.
The other best thing about this series is that it is based on an award-winning novel by the same name. The author of the book, Carlos Montero, also serves as the writer of the show. The series’ plot revolves around Raquel (Inma Cuesta), a young literature teacher. To give her marriage a second chance, she moves to the birth town of her husband. However, that town is holding a dark secret, and Raquel tries to unravel it.
As the trailer shows, Raquel joins the post of literature teacher after the previous one committed suicide. Not exactly an easy task, but she did not know that before she joined the substitute teacher position. The students are not very welcoming as well. Others warn Raquel to beware of the students, one of which is Iago (Arón Piper ).
The theme of the show looks interesting.
While talking to Variety earlier this year, Montero shed light on the theme behind The Mess You Leave Behind. He confirmed the concept is the opposite of Elite. The book/series will focus on the students’ harassment of teachers. We have seen many movies and read books that show student bullying. However, very few show the other prospect of high schools and the adult world.
We are always dealing with bullying between students, and yet many teachers can tell you about when they feeling attacked by students and being afraid of even going to class.
That’s certainly going to be a different story from what we usually see in the shows. That already makes the story of the show all the more compelling and unique.
