Only dimly aware of the shadow of World War II somewhere beyond the Castilian plateau, sisters Isabel and Ana must occupy themselves as their preoccupied scientist father and isolated, languishing mother move in their solitary orbits.

Manuela is a devoted single mother who needs to come to grips with the death of her 17-year-old son, Esteban. She had never told Esteban about his father, but after reading her son's journal she realizes she has to find Esteban's father, and explain what has happened. She leaves Madrid for Barcelona, to reconnect with her old friend Agrado, who introduces her to Rosa, a young nun in trouble, and Huma Rojo, a brilliant actress whom young Esteban idolized.
