After gangs kill her father and boyfriend and threaten her and her brother, Teresa chooses the beast as the best of her bad options and travels with her teenage brother, José, and her six-year-old brother Pepe. When José falls from the beast to his death, Teresa abandons the beast, only to fall victim to a rapist. Her fate changes when a Christian missionary leads her to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
