a rural Mexican town, a murdered Indian shaman returns from the grave
as a werewolf "shapeshifter" creature to terror the
community. Specifically, a farmer kills an Indian witch doctor after
believing he was responsible for the stillbirth of his baby. The shaman
returns as a 'Nahual' [a beast from Mexican folklore] to get
revenge and cause mayhem in the village. Town sheriff Aguilar (Roberto
Montiel) and doctor Jose Luis (Rafael Sánchez Navarro) join forces
to find out who [or what] is responsible for the killing as they refuse
to believe it's a mythical monster. A local priest tries to help with
silver bullets but he is - surprisingly - killed in the process.
