An elderly writer leads a withdrawn existence in a village in Galicia. His life revolves around the memory of a girl he fell in love with as a young boy at a Mardi Gras festival. She later mysteriously disappeared. The man is now in the process of writing a grotesque-fantasy style novel, whose characters are his housekeeper, his wife, his wife’s lover and his editor. But fiction and reality will dangerously overlap in this film.
