They decide that while on vacation, they will carry out investigations about the life of a little girl called Melinda. Some years back, Melinda was reported lost in the woods. It is believed she is still alive and wandering in the woods. The investigations become risky when the family dog is found dead by a well and they presume Melinda is responsible. A few days later, the police discover the bodies of members of the Quintanilla family. They also find the video recorded by Cristian and July. Cristian and July spend most of their time in the film, wandering around the summer home. The day after the dog was killed, Cristian and July find him dead but do not tell their parents about it. When their mother finds out that Jose is missing, she sets out to find him. Cristian and July accompany their mother in search of Jose. They separate and go in different directions. Cristian finds Julia tied onto the pillars of the balcony bleeding. Cristian takes July back to the house where they find Jose’s body burnt to ashes. They are bewildered and while they are still in shock, they hear a loud noise outside. July takes refuge in one of the cupboards in the kitchen, while Cristian runs upstairs and hides in the bedroom. The next day Cristian goes downstairs to the kitchen but does not find July. The cupboard is filled with blood. He goes to the balcony of the house and finds a video tape playing. He watches the tape and sees their mother in the tape. She is in a mental institution and narrating her story to the medical doctors. As Cristian watches the recording, his mother appears, stabs him from behind and he dies.
