Based on the novel by Camilo Jose Cela, this story revolves around the patrons of the cafe 'La Delicia'. In 1942 Madrid, both victors and vanquished frequent the cafe, and through series of vignettes of their lives and the intersections between them, the plight of the 'average' Spanish citizen is revealed as the daily misery of struggling against post-war poverty, hunger, pessimism, cold, and fear.
