Penelope and Boñita are not just professional partners but also companions. The two characters provide euthanasia to the rich people who are terribly sick and struggling with life. However, the service that they prove is not legal. When an investigation is started by the local authorities in response to the strange deaths occurring in the city, the couple begins to devise a plot to stay anonymous while remaining in business.
