¿Can you escape from the past?

When Jose Centella is about to die, he tells the story of his life to a friend. His story begins after abandoning his home town as he travels to the Colombian jungle. There, he joins the guerrillas and the story takes us to its hidden camps. We will witness armed attacks, military courts, passionate loves and not less passionate jealousy, urban guerrillas and its tactics (seduction being one of them), until José Centella has to run away and change his identity. That is how he ends up as a debt collector and, later, as an important executive in a media enterprise. But the ghosts from his past refuse to disappear.
