Marcos Ruiz de Aldazabal (Karra Elejalde) is a ruthless businessman and owner of bankrupt production company Urumea Productions. Using the San Sebastian Film Festival to his advantage, manipulative con artist Marcos plans to fool a millionairess to invest in his business by hiring a double of Ray Silvela (Jordi Molla), a prestigious American/Cuban actor, who she greatly admires.
Operation Goldenshell is a hustler comedy set in the wonderfully glamorous context of the San Sebastian Film Festival. This fast-paced con movie boasts all the best ingredients of the genre: mobsters, charmers, betrayals, romance, heartbreak, suspense… and all with the love of movies as its backdrop.
