Ariel is an atrocious criminal whose biggest ambition is to reaffirm his personality and bury the monsters of his past. Sócrates is a man submerged in misery who agrees to investigate a bleak sect in exchange for his freedom. Moarry is the invisible albino puppeteer who pulls the strings of everybody’s life. And Imelda, irresistible and lethal. The four of them are the core of this descent to hell. They are all engulfed in the underworld of this naked darkness.
