    Matías es feíto, tímido y no tiene padres. Pero la cosa empeora cuando muere su abuelo. Entonces se queda más solo que una lechuga en un gallinero. Afortunadamente, unos inesperados amigos vendrán en su ayuda: el príncipe Guillermo, el hada Luz y el brujo Gorgon, los personajes del cuento que su abuelo le contaba y que, tras su desparición, se han quedado sin trabajo.

    Peru, the 1980s and 1990s: It was a cruel, bloody and terrifying era. The rebels of Sendero Luminoso ("Shining Path"), founded by philosophy professor, Abimael Guzman, slaughtered vilagers in the mountains and hung dogs from power lines, their carcasses canvases for Maoist slogans. The government responded with a corrosive mix of assasination, bribery and intrigue which brought down the rebel leader but triggered the fall of the president.

    The war against the Shining Path is over. Yet when a charred and mutilated body is discovered during Carnival, the people of the small town of Ayacucho understand that death has once more returned to their land. Only now the terror emanates not from the government death squads, nor from the guerrillas in the mountains, but from a single source: a serial murderer. And now everyone is afraid. Everyone is a suspect.
