The plot of the series “Elite” takes us to sultry Spain. Three teenagers from working class backgrounds win a scholarship and go to the elite school “Las Encinas”, one of the most prestigious in the country. Samuel, Nadia, and Christian will have a difficult struggle to survive and and get their place in the sun among their peers, who are accustomed to wealthy families’ prerogatives from birth.

As in any television project made in Spain, passion is unstoppable in this series, which even leads to several deaths.

In general, the “Elite” is trying to speak out on almost all the topics possible: the stratification of society, child crime and bisexuality, drugs, cancer, aggression, polyamorous relationships and disability. Such a frantic set sometimes looks very tense, but the pace and intensity of emotions do their job, making “Elite” a series that is oddly fascinating.
