Dionisio Vivo, a South American lecturer in philosphy, is puzzled
by the hideously mutilated corpses that keep turning up outside his
front door. To his friend, Ramon, one of the few honest policement
in town, the message is all too clear: Dionisio's letters to the
press, exposing the drug barons, must stop; and although Dionisio
manages to escape the hit-men sent to get him, he soon realises
that others are more vulnerable, and his love for them leads him to
take a colossal revenge.
