Nicaragua 1979. Ante la inminente caída de la dictadura somocista, Alirio Martinica trata de huir por mar. Es aprendido por jóvenes combatientes del Frente Sandinista y llevado a juicio popular, acusado de participar, directa o indirectamente, en acciones criminales del régimen de Somoza, de quien llegó a ser secretario privado, "hombre todopoderoso en las sombras", hasta que hacia 1976 lo echaron del círculo íntimo en medio de confusas circunstancias.
