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.
