Sara suspects he is merely a fraud, but seeing her mother start to heal gives her reasons to believe in him, drawing her closer to him. But she is not the only being drawn to the healer: a strange creature preying on stray animals and roving pets has honed in on Richardo, seeking to become human once again at all cost. Can Richardo and Sara's growing love for each other bring them together to fend off this monster?

Ricardo knows that is impossible and would be devastating for innocent people so he refuses knowing he will fight this evil, but he will need a specially ally, the woman he loves, whom the monster craves too.
