    • Synopsis
    • The nude body of a man appears tied to a bed in a roadside motel. Sergeant Ruben Bevilacqua (Vila) and his colleague, police officer Virginia Chamorro, receive the order to investigate the death, a particularly delicate matter because the murdered man was an engineer at a nuclear plant and the press is printing alarmist speculations.
      Everything would have been quite normal if the engineer hadn’t died under these circumstances and if he hadn’t arrived at the motel with a very pretty young girl who has since disappeared without a trace. Vila and Chamorro’s work is intense and complicated and while the closeness of their work together reinforces a personal relationship with too many obstacles to overcome, the investigation draws an ironic, stark portrait of society.
