Three parallel stories that occur in the eve of the infamous Pozzetto Massacre, involving a femme-fatal that cons on rich men, a priest who's in love with his housekeeper and a tired-of-life veteran of war who has become a teacher and desires one of his female students. Three characters looking for love, redemption and second chances in a world reigned by their own fears, temptations, passions and pains, which will end up in a trigger effect of tragic events.Written by

Why I say this film could be better??? Well... it's based on a book: "Satanas" by Mario Mendoza... but the book it's based in one of the worst spree killing ever. Before Columbine, in 1987 there was a man called Campoelías Delgado who entered in a restaurant and kill the customers at the tables. The man was a former soldier in the Korea War, mentally ill and a tickin' bomb. Before kill the people in that restaurant, he burned his mother and shoot the neighbors in the building he lived... nobody knows if he kills himself with a shot in the head or died in the crossfire with the police... but it's a raw good story for a movie. But, I don't know... I haven't read the book, but the movie focuses in other minor characters whom don't worth it. The plot is in the head of Eliseo (played by the great actor Damian Alcazar, who is the only Mexican actor who can talk without that ugly accent)and his madness... I don't care about an illegitimate relationship between a priest and his fellow parishioner girl or the vengeance for a rape. It would be more like it if the movie could show HOW and WHY Eliseo hit the rock bottom.
