Produced by Zebra Producciones (Grupo iZen), the series begins when the corpse of a young woman without eyelids appears in Valladolid. Detective Sancho (Francisco Ortiz) predicts a sequence of homicides and, with the support of “Carapocha” (Juan Echanove), one of the greatest experts on serial killers, follows the trail of bodies that Augusto (Yon González), a sociopath from refined taste, leave it for the city. They soon discover that they are facing a killer who commits crimes as if it were a soundtrack, signing the bodies of his victims with poems. What Sancho doesn’t know is that the chase is about to turn into a very “personal” duel.
