Rebellious wild child Xabi is proof personified that you don't have to be straight to be a terrorist. The brawny rebel has been in and out of reform schools and prisons since he was a child. While out on the streets, he meets and falls in love with hot-headed militant Iñaki, a Basque separatist who teaches him the ways of the revolution. Along with his two friends, Mexican Joel and Moroccan immigrant Driss, Xabi dramatically escapes from prison and hitches a ride to Madrid. On the hunt for his revolutionary lover, Xabi goes cruising at a mall, steals weapons, breaks into an empty apartment and sets up a small bomb factory, all so that he can impress his gun-toting lover. However, as the bullets start to fly, Joel and Driss make a daring attempt to scupper the terrorist plot.
Highly original and a hit in its native Spain, Clandestinos blends controversial themes of gang culture, guerrilla subterfuge and outrageous bed-hopping antics to gripping effect.
