A bullfighter forced to retire
early from his career due to a goring, finds that his obsession for
killing still lingers, but now women take the place of bulls. To
make love to a woman and kill her at the culminating moment is the
closest thing to the ineffable pleasure of an afternoon in the
bullring. Maria is a woman driven by similar dark desires and when
they meet, the consequences are deadly.
