A private eye investigating one mystery finds another along the way in this suspense thriller from Colombia. When a professional boxer is accused of murdering a streetwalker, Emerson (Fernando Solorzano), a former policeman who now works as a private detective, is hired to find out the truth about the woman's murder in order to clear the fighter's name.
As Emerson tries to pull together the pieces of the life of the late Golondrina (Flora Martinez), he discovers that she was known by a variety of names and led a number of parallel lives. The deeper Emerson digs into her past, the more he begins to suspect that they may have crossed paths somewhere down the line.
