He's a talented potter, with refined manners but mentally unstable. One night, he says, he went to spent the night in a casino, where he met a beautiful woman (Rita Macedo). After having a fight with her lover, the woman crashes her car and De la Cruz offers to ride her home, place where he thinks he committed the murder.
