Policeman Agustín Rejas is instructed to apprehend the famous guerilla leader Ezequiel, the brains behind a backwoods revolution which is threatening to reach the city and cause the downfall of the government. Alarmed by the brutal tactics of intimidation adopted by Ezequiel's followers, the military decides to respond by using equal or superior force - thereby provoking an atmosphere of collective panic. Rejas follows the trail of the already legendary Ezequiel end even senses the rebels bearing down on him. It is thanks to Yolanda, his daughter Laura's dance teacher, that he finds within himself the strength not to abandon the trail.
