Madrid. 1988. The city pulses with art, industry, and passion. Pepa’s world, however, is unraveling. First her lover Ivan leaves her. And then she meets his ex-wife. And his son. And his new girlfriend. All with grief and unresolved issues of their own. Meanwhile, Pepa’s best friend is entangled in a romantic crisis with a suspected criminal. The story revolves around women and the men who pursue them: finding them, losing them, needing them, and rejecting them.
