Eliseo Montalbán is a musician in turmoil. As a boy he witnessed the rape and murder of his sister atop a piano, the sequence of notes accidentally forming a melody that has haunted him ever since. Many years later, as Montalbán is about to conduct a symphony based upon the same motif, he witnesses a second shocking death and descends into madness.
Now, Ricardo Coppa, a mediocre musician seeking recognition and success, attempts to rescue this lost symphony. Marshalling a group of musicians, he embarks on a quest for Montalbán and his composition, unaware of the dangers he is unleashing.
