The story, set in 1999, is told in flashback form: in June 1974 a federal justice agent, Benjamin Esposito, investigates the brutal rape and murder of a young woman in her house in a Buenos Aires neighborhood. Her husband, bank employee Ricardo Morales, is shocked by the news; Esposito vows to find the killer and bring him to justice.

Though at first it seems justice will be served, a corrupt government system sets the killer free. Many years later, Esposito finds out that in fact, maybe the best kind of justice is taking place.
