In 1981 Dulce (Ruddy Rodríguez) lived in an old house with her sons Leopoldo (Rosmel Bustamante) and Rodrigo (Hector Mercado), and her husband Juan José (Gonzalo Cubero). During that time she experienced multiple cases of strange supernatural phenomena, most notably an elderly woman that continues to warn her that Juan José will soon murder their children. Dulce desperately tries to keep this from happening but is not only unsuccessful, but is also shocked when the police arrive and find that Juan José has also been killed. As there are no other people in the house, Dulce is arrested and imprisoned for the murder. Thirty years later an elderly Dulce has been released from jail, but under the requirement that she serve the rest of her sentence under house arrest in the very house where the murders took place. Once settled, Dulce is visited by a local priest (Guillermo Garcia) who wants desperately to get her to turn back to God as Dulce has lost all faith in religion. She successfully manages to enlist his help in discovering what exactly happened in her home thirty years ago.
