John Leguizamo, in a rare watchable performance, is Manolo Bonilla, an arrogant Miami TV journalist, who regularly appears on a popular newsmagazine. Like most everyone else in the media and law enforcement, he's fascinated with the case of a child killer on the loose in Ecuador, a man dubbed The Monster for obvious reasons. At the funeral of the most recent victims, however, Manolo witnesses another monstrous act -- the twin brother of one of the dead children is killed by a careless driver named Vinicio Cepeda (Damián Alcázar). Cepeda claims that he once picked up The Monster as a hitchhiker, and the man confessed some of his crimes to him, including the murder of a girl whom the police have not yet found. If Manolo will agree to do a feature on Cepeda's unfair conviction, he agrees to reveal everything he knows about the killer. Cepeda himself may be the killer, but writer-director Sebastián Cordero is more interested in exploring the role and responsibility of the media in society.
