New Promo for the upcoming season for the acclaimed HBO Europe Series ‘Golden Life’ (Aranyélet).

The story is about a family that seems idyllic from outside, but the parents commit crimes for their living.
As the father wants to quit the illegal lifestyle, the children are getting more & more involved in crime.

The first season ended with a police car stopping by the family’s house. Since we don’t know who they’d come for and each character committed crimes big enough to be convicted, we made every member of the family confess. We created a teaser based on this, taking sentences from each speech and make it as one big confession, designed as a one-take, to let people guess who will be taken by the police.
