On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan, a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record. Vargas suspects that Quinlan has planted evidence to win his past convictions, and he is not about to let the suspect in the current case be railroaded. Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap. Dissecting the nature of good and evil in a hallucinatory, nightmarish ambiance, this baroque south-of-the-border mystery opens with one of the most remarkably extended long takes in movie history
