While incarcerated, Alfonso loses himself in the depths of his own madness. Haunted by the ghost of his dead friend, his only solace in life is in the arms of the beautiful prison nurse. But when a powerful crime boss visits Alfonso, he learns of the mother that gave him away. She’s dying, and has asked to see her son one last time before it’s too late.
