As soon as they arrive in Mexico City, they receive news that the priest they are looking for has disappeared without a trace. Their lives and their faith are taken to the limit when they discover the psychiatric community located on the outskirts of town, which seems to hide more than one secret regarding the healing priest and his disappearance.
