After her mother's death, Amalia learns that her husband is having an affair. But when he mysteriously dies a few days later, the young widow, obsessed by her late husband's mistress, succumbs to bloodthirsty madness.

We were eagerly awaiting Omar Rodriguez-Lopez's return, the ex Mars Volta guitarist switched filmmaker ten years ago, whose formidable Los Chidos you might have discovered at L’Étrange. As well as confirming his status as a talented filmmaker, he reveals a new young actress, Denise Dorado, that we're sure we’ll hear more from soon. One of this edition's great discoveries !
