The movie starts with the assassination and the arrest of an assassin, but nobody knows who’s behind the murder, and rumors of a conspiracy swirl. Intelligence officer Captain Andrés Vázquez is appointed to lead a secret investigation running parallel to the official one. Meanwhile, military officer El Seco, who specializes in selective murders, receives orders to eliminate all witnesses and forensic evidence. The closer Vazquez gets to piecing the puzzle together, the more he endangers his life and the life of his girlfriend.
