In the hodge-podge of Peruvian government officials there is one man named Constantino Zegarra. He feels superior and observes his colleagues "from above" because he has never succumbed to an act of corruption and every time he has had the opportunity to do so, he has made an effort to impede it. Pureness -the fuel for his soul- has been cultivated over the last two decades as a government official. At forty years of age, this solitary soldier is a married man and a father of a teenage girl who’s always reading and talking about her “progenitor’s stupidity." But he doesn’t care what they think. Constantino has taken his principles to extremes in order to prove to himself that he is not equal to his father, a man who ended up living in poverty because of corruption. One morning Constantino leaves his house and a stray bullet pierces his throat. He doesn’t die but becomes mute. After his recovery, the only thing that he is certain of is that someone from his office tried to kill him.
