In 1990, six friends celebrate their graduation. The party comes to a shocking conclusion when one of them, Angel, falls to her death. Ten years later, two of the people who attended the party show up dead in Miguel's morgue, where he works as a medical examiner. Convinced that Angel has come back for vengeance, he alerts Carolina. Through flashbacks, the film reveals that Miguel had a relationship with Angel, who was bullied and unaccepted by her peers. Miguel and Carolina try to survive the masked killer, and Carolina works to uncover what really happened the day that Angel died.

Director Jorge Olguín wanted to make a homage to his favorite filmmakers, John Carpenter and Dario Argento. He decided to use all the standard giallo and slasher film tropes and cliches but with a unique Latin American flavor. Shooting took 20 days and was in Santiago.
