In a small seaside suburb two strangers arrive - Juan Olmedo, accompanied by his niece, and Sara Gomez, an enigmatic woman in her fifties. Both have their reasons for fleeing the city.Sara's father had returned from the Civil War a broken man, unable to support his family. In desperation, Sara's mother was forced to give up her young baby to her childless employer. Growing up amidst a background that would never truly be her own, Sara was forever caught between her love of the good life and her feelings of duty toward a family and a poverty that repelled her. Now Sara has more money than she ever dreamed of, but her freedom has come at a price.Juan also has his reasons for starting a new life. A doctor in a local ER unit, he is haunted by a tragedy in his family's past and by a secret sexual obsession that threatens the fragile equilibrium he has found in his new home.
