When he starts to ask questions the families of the victims they claim that the people he saw slaughtered on the streets are actually alive, but at this time away from town.

Mystery movie set during the times of Inquisition when Maurs where no longer thread in Spain and Jews were forced to change religion or to be expelled from the country.
