Synopsis :

Alba Aiello, a young secretive homicide detective, moves to a small town, where, apparently, nothing ever happens. When various burnt corpses are found in a praying position in the middle of a field in strange circumstances, she starts investigating with the help of her assistant Fidel who she feels attracted to.  The investigations seem to lead to nowhere, until the magician arrives in town, a strange child claiming to have the gift of seeing people’s past when he touches their photograph. While the child reveals that his power is true by discovering Alba’s dark secret, he starts gaining her trust and she starts believing in a paranormal explanation to the deaths. As the authorities press her into closing the investigation, and the local priest tries to persuade her that it is the devil’s work, they unmask an unexpected and darker culprit.
