Angela is studying at the Academy of Cinematography. She is working on a thesis about
violence in the audiovisual media. As an aid for her work, her tutor Figueroa promised to search in the videotheque for extremely violent films. While her classmate Chema invites her to see several gore and porno films in his house, Figueroa discovers a labyrinth of underground galleries filled with hundreds of tapes. He chooses one of them and gets out. Next morning, Angela finds him dead in the projection room. She steals the tape that he was watching. Intrigued by this story, Chema convinces Angela to watch the film together. The tape is a "snuff movie', the recording of a murder. Horrified, Angela sees how a girl is tortured and dismembered.
