Pedro is in a constant struggle for clients, as many women are forbidden to see him based on fears and prejudices of their boyfriends or husbands. His neighbor, Antón, is successful in the fashion business as he pretends to be gay and can thus attract a female clientele whose husbands and families are not threatened by him. Both men meet up unexpectedly in Madrid and end up spending the week partying and sleeping with (mostly foreign) women in Antón's apartment. Meanwhile, Pedro's mother and girlfriend, alarmed at his disappearance, travel to Madrid to discover his whereabouts, and mistakenly confirm their suspicion that Pedro is having a gay relationship with Antón

This literary film is imbued with the disenchantment of Spanish exiles who left their homes to protest Franco's fascist regime and then returned after its demise to find that democracy had not instilled either ethics or deep motivation in government leaders. Director Basilio Martin Patino presents his story, (a large part of the film is based on his own life), through the experiences of an exiled heroine played by Charo Lopez. She has returned to Spain to look for meaning in her life, something that she never found living in Germany, not even after having a child. She is also in the process of translating the German lyric poet Friederich Hölderlin into Spanish, focusing on his epic Hyperion. Excerpts from the translation are voiced over throughout the film. As she looks up old friends from many years ago, she finds even those who have achieved worldly success are suffering from the same ennui that propelled her back home

These are just a few of the annoyances which lead his wife, in sympathy, to set fire to their weekend retreat.
