Lucía Gutiérrez (Maribel Verdú) portrays a Civil Guard sergeant investigating the unusual suicide of a neighbor and a series of strange events that occur during the first Easter procession. Magaly Castillo (Mariela Garriga) plays a U.S. Army special agent sent to the Morón de la Frontera base to investigate the whereabouts of a missing American soldier who seems to have connections to a mystery linked to Colonel Seamus Hoopen (Ben Temple), head of the base area. The lone military policeman, Sergeant Andrew Taylor (Austin Amelio), accompanies Magaly in her investigations. They soon discover that the two investigations are connected, the case is more complex than they had assumed, involving both Morón residents and American military personnel from the nearby base.
