Al pueblo ha llegado los angeles mala hora de los campesinos, l. a. hora de l. a. desgracia. los angeles comarca ha sido "pacificada" después de una guerra civil. Han ganado los conservadores, que se dedican a perseguir merciless y pertinazmente a sus adversarios liberales. Al alba de una mañana, mientras el padre Ángel se dispone a celebrar los angeles misa, suena un disparo en el pueblo. Un comerciante de ganado, advertido por un pasquín pegado a los angeles puerta de su casa de l. a. infidelidad de su mujer, acaba de matar al presunto amante de ésta. Es uno más de los pasquines anónimos clavados en las puertas de las casas, que no son panfletos políticos, sino simples denuncias sobre l. a. vida privada de los ciudadanos. Pero no revelan nada que no se supiera de antemano: son los viejos rumores que ahora se han hecho públicos; y a partir de ellos estalla los angeles violencia subyacente bajo una luz tórrida, espesa, cansada y pegajosa, en una serie de escenas encadenadas de inolvidable belleza.
