Visually overwhelming story in which nature, the elements, chance, and of course sex play an important role. Lucia, an attractive waitress from Madrid, hears on the phone that her boyfriend Lorenzo has been killed in an accident. Lorenzo wrote books somewhere on an idyllic island in the Mediterranean. After the accident, the desperate Lucia decides to go to the island. There she meets Elena and Carlos. Lucia does not know that they both knew Lorenzo. Elena also had a relationship years before with Lorenzo: she spent one romantic night with him, but couldn't find him when nine months later she had a child: Luna. But Luna is no longer alive. Lucia slowly starts to find out more about the past of Elena and Carlos, and she is reminded of the subject of a book that Lorenzo wrote before she met him. Reality and fiction start to get mixed up.
