This film represents the Peruvian adaptation of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment with a special focus upon the religious aspects of the story. This version is set in modern Lima and closely follows the original plot. It centers around Ramon a poor student who makes a startling confession to a priest. While struggling as a student, Ramon encounters Sonia a very young prostitute. Her plight fills him with rage against the injustices of society. He subsequently murders a rich, old woman and her husband. He then has several strange encounters with an almost omni-present police inspector.
