Brandon is prepared to go to any lengths to inject some excitement into his life. When he and his impressionable friend Granillo murder a fellow student, they place the body in a wooden chest.

As the horror and tension reaches a climax, will the two murderers' nerve hold out or will the suspicious Rupert Cadell discover their ghastly secret?
