This is Una vida menos en Canarias

Luis Lacasa, a prestigious homicide inspector in Madrid, is forced to accept a transfer to the Canary Islands and adapt to everything he hates: the heat, the sand and the tourists, but above all to Naira, a charismatic inspector, a lover of his land with whom, despite their differences and rivalries, he will form a good team and at the same time, a complicity that will question his iron convictions.

The cold and cerebral Castilian suffers from achromatopsia, a visual dysfunction that makes him see life in shades of gray, without color, a pathology that has amplified his hermeticism. In this criminal paradise, the inspector is reunited with his daughter Jimena, a renowned chef with whom he has been estranged since the death of his wife in the accident from which he suffers after-effects.

Life on the islands will push him to leave his comfort zone, to meet his daughter and to be amazed by a disturbing detail; sometimes, he perceives color in the inspector.
