The video depicts a group of three friends driving near Sintra, Portugal, where they see a young woman walking on the side of the road late at night. They invite her into the car to get a ride. She is very quiet and after a while points to a part of the road and says that was where she had an accident and died. The camera pans to her face covered in blood and she screams as the car crashes. After the video cuts off, subtitles state that two of the passengers were killed in the accident and that the police discovered that a woman named Teresa Fidalgo died in a car accident in that exact location in 1983.
