Verónica Rosenthal has retreated to a cousin’s remote cottage in the province of Tucumán, to recuperate from the traumatic
events in The Fragility of Bodies. She befriends two female tourists –an Italian and a Norwegian-- invites them to stay and
starts a sexual relationship with one of them. After a party they attend together, Verónica travels on alone but days later
discovers that the women have been murdered. Suspicion falls on a local Umbanda priest, but Verónica starts to uncover a web
of corruption, abuse and femicide in which government, wealthy landowners and a high-ranking official from the Argentina’s
‘Dirty War’ are all implicated. Verónica’s investigation, with its unforeseen political dimensions, has alarmed new enemies
who will try to stop her at all cost.
