Patagonia, 1960. The infamous Nazi criminal Josef Mengele, going by an alias, connects with an Argentine family and follows them to Bariloche, where they are set to open a new hotel. Chillingly interested in the mother, pregnant with twins, and their diminutive 12-year-old daughter, Mengele's dark passions are reignited. Unaware of his true identity, the family welcomes the charismatic man with open arms, until they discover his disturbing secret.
