Synopsis

Rosario becomes a contract killer to insulate herself from the random violence of the streets of Medellin, Colombia. Then she is shot, gravely wounded, and the circle of contradiction is closed. From the corridors of the hospital where Rosario is fighting for her life, Antonio, waits to learn if she will recover. He keeps a nighttime vigil where, piece by piece, as he moves through layers of recollection and speculation he reconstructs the friendship between them, the story of her many lovers, and her life as a hitwoman.
