Storyline

Based on a real-life murder case, chiefly narrated by Macu in flashbacks. Ismael Ramírez is a middle-aged police captain who falls in love with 8-year-old Macu.

Years later, Macu falls in love with Simón, an adolescent her own age. Ismael's jealousy leads to murder. Written by fkelleghan@aol.com
