Paulina Salas, a former political prisoner, and her husband Gerardo Escobar, an attorney, live in a country at a time when its government is transitioning from dictatorship to democracy. Gerardo is rescued from a flat tire on a country road and safely delivered to his home by Dr. Roberto Miranda, a physician. When they arrive at Gerardo's home, Roberto finds himself accused of rape and torture by Paulina who insists he is the sadistic doctor who tortured her when she was a political prisoner. She takes him hostage, and puts him on trial forcing him to confess his crimes. Roberto's protest of his innocence leads to an all-night stand-off between the three characters. Complex relationships and thrilling twists and turns bring this story of love, betrayal, revenge, and forgiveness to a surprising conclusion that will have audiences talking long after the show has ended.
