The woman named Magda is a mother of 3 kids: twin daughters Paulina and Claudia, and her youngest son Ruben. Her husband, Alejandro Guzman Estrada begins getting threat calls and videos indicating a kidnapping so much so that a bomb is planted in his car which almost kills his son Ruben. Alejandro is aware of the people he has made his business deals with. They not only threaten him but also his family. Terrified by the car bomb incident, Magda tries to talk to her husband about an escape strategy but all in vain. He instead warns her about killing her along with her kids. Magda can’t take it anymore. She decides to go far away from that house with her kids, but she has a plan. She cannot just escape. She plans an abduction, of her children and herself.
