The story, set in 1999, is told in flashback form: in June 1974 a federal justice agent, BenjamÃn EspÃ³sito, becomes spellbound by and subsequently entangled in the investigation of the crime of a young woman, brutally raped and murdered inside her house in a Buenos Aires neighbourhood. Her widowed husband, bank employee Ricardo Morales, is shocked by the news; EspÃ³sito vows to find the killer and bring him to justice. In his ordeal he is aided by his alcoholic assistent Pablo Sandoval and a newcomer, the upper class lawyer Irene MenÃ©ndez-Hastings, who takes over as department chief. EspÃ³sito’s rivaling partner Romano pins the murder on two immigrant workers so as to get rid of the matter – an issue that enrages EspÃ³sito, who attacks Romano in a fury.
He finds a tip soon enough while looking over some old pictures provided by Morales: he comes across a dubious young man – identified as Isidoro GÃ³mez – who looks at the victim in a suspicious way in several photos. EspÃ³sito investigates the whereabouts of GÃ³mez, and determines that he is living and working in Buenos Aires, but fails to locate him.
EspÃ³sito and Sandoval break into GÃ³mez’ household in the city of Chivilcoy, hometown not only of GÃ³mez, but also of Morales ill-fated wife. During the illegal search, they (unwillingly) steal a set of letters written by the suspect to his mother. Back in Buenos Aires, the deed earns them trouble back at the courthouse, and neither make nothing out the letters. In addition, GÃ³mez remains at large due to a careless phonecall made earlier by Morales, who desperately wanted to apprehend the killer of his wife. In the end, it is Sandoval who comes across a new lead: a fellow drinker in the bar identifies the various names mentioned in the letters (neither with apparent connection) as them being those of various soccer players of Racing Club.
EspÃ³sito leaves. He pays a visit to Sandoval’s grave. Knowing that GÃ³mez will never be a free man again, he finally comes to terms with his life. He visits Irene one more time, where he finally responds to her feelings. Their love rekindled, they smilingly shut themselves in her office.
