"El Orejón" is a violent and agoraphobic crime boss who lives surrounded by telescopes in a luxury high-rise apartment in the center of the city. When his godson William Medina is killed, he beseeches Iris, a voodoo priestess, to avenge the murder by casting a deadly spell on the shooter. While Iris conducts her black magic, miles away from her a small-town heavy named Victor Peñaranda is carrying out a job to collect money from a slippery pair of twins. He makes a disastrous decision to break the sacred law of the crime world—he keeps the cash for himself. His choice unwittingly sets off a domino effect that wreaks havoc through two cities and the realm of the netherworld. Marlon Moreno, who plays Victor Peñaranda, won Best Actor at the 2009 Guadalajara International Film Festival for this portrayal.
