A teacher took as hostage 4 students so the school authorities would listen to his demands. Due to an accident, the 4 students died that night. 5 years later, the corpse of that teacher is found, along with 2 graves that bears the names of 3 people who were directly involved with the incident that night; focusing particulary on Laura Santini (a psychologist) and Renzo Marquez (a policeman that retired after the incident and now works as a taxi driver). Following the clues left in the crime scene, soon they realize that the person behind it has been planning a series of murders for the last 5 years, and that he intends to kill everyone who was involved with the school incident; leaving Laura and Renzo for the end.

I got hooked on Epitafios from the get-go. English is my first language but I also speak, read and write Spanish (my parents were portenos from Buenos Aires). I read another comment complaining that although the series was filmed in Buenos Aires, the actors do not speak in the Argentine dialect. I noticed that right away, and I was a little disappointed because I enjoy hearing Argentinians speaking Spanish...the way my parents and other family members spoke. But I understand why...this series no doubt was aired throughout South America and the story line really has nothing to do with Buenos Aires or Argentina...it could be set anywhere. But I have enjoyed seeing location shots of the city (like Recoleta)...I was just in Buenos Aires this past October.
Epitafios is over the top to be sure, and melodramatic, just as are all the Spanish novelas. But there is just something fascinating about the series and I only wish that it would last longer that 13 episodes. I love the Sopranos (I was born in NYC and raised in NJ) but I think Epitafios is just as good. I can only hope that the producers of Epitafios will bring us more good stuff in the future.
