When reporter Helen McNulty visits a South American country to write about a political revolutionary, she is kidnapped and forced to endure months of physical abuse.

There, she bonds with fellow group member Tomas Ramirez -- but before long, Helen begins to suspect that Tomas is not who he claims to be.
