Angustias, Puerto Rico, 1982
Even a tropical paradise can have its little
In the early morning hours, a neighbor named Tomas Villareal
knocks on the door of the home of Luis Gonzalo, the sheriff of
Angustias, a small town in the mountains of Puerto Rico. Tomas
reports that his son is missing, and the sheriff agrees to help
search for the boy. Gonzalo is certain there is a simple
explanation--that the child has just wandered off to visit a friend
or fallen asleep in a field.
But then a second child is reported missing, and there are no
clues to her whereabouts either. Soon the sheriff, the parents, and
the entire town are searching frantically, but the horrors have
only just begun. Gonzalo begins to suspect an organized plot to
harm the children of Angustias, and he races against the clock to
prevent the town''s children from disappearing one by one.
