"When three working-class teens enrol in an exclusive private school in Spain, the clash between them and the wealthy students leads to murder."
—Netflix synopsis

The series follows three working class students, Samuel, Nadia and Christian who are given scholarships to the most elite private school in Spain, Las Encinas, following their schools collapse.

The three initially struggle at the school, ostracised by the wealthy upper-class students, but quickly find their ground when Samuel befriends Mariana, the daughter of the corrupt manager of the construction company sponsoring the trio's scholarships. The other two find their ground too, with Nadia becoming increasingly close with Mariana's arrogant brother while Christian is involved in an open relationship with Polo and Carla.

As the year at Las Encinas goes on, the audience is able to explore the relationships between the characters through flash-forwards that eventually lead to a death.
