Tattoo of Revenge.

In 1990s Mexico City -a chaotic universe of extremes, where criminals go unpunished and policemen are as lawless as criminals -a heroine becomes the avenger of raped young women. Wearing different disguises, she seduces the rapists, narcotizes them and then brands them with tattoos. Her powerful enemies prepare an ambush to uncover her true identity. Her only salvation is the emancipation of another woman.
