Synopsis

A more than unusual murderer allows himself to be accompanied by a film crew to make live recordings of his contract killings. When in front of the camera, he gives neverending and enthusiastic explanations of the realities of his trade, detailing his motives and methods. He even reveals himself as a man of the world, a poetra lover, a person sometimes able to show his innermost feelings. To finish off a young murder victim, he requests and is given assistance from the director who ends up, along with his colleagues, partaking in a collective rape.
Whilst on his home territory, an armed confrontation between gangs cause the death of the sound engineer and the cameraman. To take his revenge, the assassin coldly kills the members of another film crew. Arrested and handed over to the courts, he manages to escape. But, on discovering the corpses of his parents and his girlfriend, he begins to understand that his end is at hand.
