Original title: La ciudad de la mentira

Stanley Mortison, the secretary of the North American consul, recruits Joan Allison, a young, attractive American new in Tangier and anxious to see the world, as an informant. Hoping to get to know the cosmopolitan city better, they ask the young, Tangier-educated priest Martín Ugarte to act as their guide. This decision will cause a chain reaction with unexpected consequences, endangering the neutrality of the Protectorate and shaking up the lives of everyone involved as they unwittingly interfere with the interests of the powerful and dangerous Spanish and German consuls.
