Claudia is happily married to a promising architect who comes from a rich family of builders. During a children's party, something happens that appears to have nothing to do with Claudia: a clown is found hanged. Her husband receives a letter from the clown and anxiously leaves the house without explanation. A few hours later, he is found beaten to death in his car. Claudia's life is shattered. The clown was Maria's brother and used to work for Claudia's husband, but Maria was in the dark as to what he did and cannot believe that he has commited suicide. Together they hope to find the truth.
