Angela (Ana Torrent: Spirit of the Beehive, Cria), is a university student writing her thesis about violence in the media.
During her research, she comes across a shocking ”snuff” film (a film where a murder is actually committed for the camera) that has apparently been shot on the campus. Investigating further, she uncovers clues that the university s administrators may be involved in an unexplained series of student disappearances, leading her to the ultimate terrifying revelation: she might be the next victim. Tesis has been acclaimed by critics around the world as a superbly constructed thriller that generates considerable suspense and thrills from beginning to end.
