“The Monster” is back to propose Diego taking part in the Game of the Challenges, a macabre game he invented himself for his novel. If he wants to get Ariadna back, the renowned author will have to pass three extreme challenges that will be streamed throughout the world.

Inspector Rocamora, in charge of the case and a close friend of the couple, is suspicious of several people. However, they are running out of time, and there is only three days’ time between one challenge and the next one.
