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. After attending the screening of James Whale's "Frankenstein" at a makeshift movie theater in town, Ana becomes obsessed with the idea of befriending the imaginary monster. Largely wordless, the film functions as a striking trompe d'loeil about childhood imagination versus the wider perspective of the adult world

Un joven, Víctor, aterriza en París dónde toda la familia está reunida en torno al padre, Max. Pero el enfermo se comporta de la manera más extraña. ¿Por qué intenta escaparse de la clínica? ¿Por qué tiene miedo a los que le cuidan? Se ha vuelto loco? Quizás, pero Víctor, al contrario de los demás miembros de la familia que solo encuentran interés en las cuestiones de herencia, quiere saber porque. ¿Por qué su padre pierde la razón precisamente de esta forma? ¿Por qué tanto miedo? Con el tiempo, Víctor consigue ganarse la confianza del anciano y empieza a seguir sus instrucciones. Estas, al principio, resultan bastante incoherentes. Tiene que llamar un número de teléfono que no existe. Empieza a buscar a un hombre que parece haber muerto años atrás. Saca a su padre de la clínica solo para descubrir que el anciano ya no reconoce las calles dónde pasó su juventud. Cuando la familia averigua el incidente y para prevenir cualquier nueva escapada, se fija nuevas reglas para las visitas. Víctor, destrozado, humillado, está a punto de abandonar una búsqueda que visiblemente es un despropósito. Cuando, de repente, todo empieza a cobrar sentido. Víctor descubre que la locura de su padre esconde un terrible secreto. Un secreto que les puede herir a todos
