"La mala hora" takes place in a nameless Colombian village, where an anonymous person has been placing pieces of shameful gossip around the town. Some dismiss these as petty -- until a man kills his wife's alleged lover after reading of her disloyalty. The mayor decides to take action and sends unofficical soldiers to patrol the streets. While this state of unrest reigns, he also cracks down on his political enemies.
