Two men on a motorcycle; shots are fired; another man is left dead on the ground: Paula's father has been assassinated. She is a typical, dreamy college student; he was an admired professor. The law offers no answers. With revenge in her sights, Paula desperately sets out to find her father's killer. By chance, she meets him—dancing, smiling—at a nightclub. The two grow closer. His name is Jesús. He wants to be with her. She wants to kill him.
