Early one morning in a deserted field, Ramon Castanos is confronted with the dead body of Adela, a lovely young girl, whom he had only admired from afar. Within an hour, rumor of the death of Ramon Castanos's girlfriend has spread to every corner of Loma Grande. This powder-trail of gossip ignites further violence when the villagers, thirsty for revenge, cast about for answers and hit upon the nomadic Jose Echeverri-Berriozabal, known as the Gypsy. Honor then demands that Ramon must now live out his imaginary past in a brutal reality and prove his manhood by avenging Adela's cruel fate.
