Based on the tales of Orestes from Greek mythology, this film tells the story of Sebastian who was swept away from his home as a small child during a massacre orchestrated by his unfaithful mother and her lover which ultimately resulted in the death of his father. Many years later, his childhood friend Rafael finds him living quietly on a farm but, after dredging up Sebastian’s forgotten past, the pair decide to set out on a road to revenge that ultimately culminates with one of the more memorable finales in the genre.
