Thesis, in general terms, enjoyed a good reception and mostly favorable criticism in his native Spain, even winning seven of his eight nominations in the 1997 Goya Awards (only the Best Actress was missing).
Ángela, a university student, is preparing a thesis about audiovisual violence. As a complement to her work, her thesis director agrees to look in the video library of the material faculty for her, but the next day he is found dead. Angela meets Chema, a fellow expert in gore and pornographic cinema, and Bosco, a strange boy, intimate friend of a young woman killed in a snuff movie.
