In "La novia gitana", Susana Macaya, a gypsy musician disappears after her bachelorette party. Her corpse is found two days later in the Quinta de Vista Alegre in the Carabanchel neighborhood of Madrid. It would be just another murder, if it were not for the fact that she was tortured following an unusual and atrocious ritual, and that her sister Lara suffered the same fate seven years ago, also on the eve of her wedding. However, her murderer has been in prison ever since, so there are only two possibilities: either someone imitated his methods, or an innocent person was incarcerated in his place. At the police station, the mysterious case is assigned to Blanco, a peculiar and lonely veteran officer who loves karaoke and collector's cars.
