Paula (Laura de Pedro), a young, beautiful and smart woman is desperately in love with Jorge (Roberto Álvarez), a once divorced literary genius who keeps his feelings held close to his heart.
Jorge is nominated to win a prominent literary award, but is only eligible if he completes his current novel. Much to Paula’s dismay, he decides to spend some months living away in his lakeside cottage to complete his writing. Although she accepts the move, Jorge’s lack of passion wears on Paula’s mind, and the limits of her loyalty begin to present themselves. She gradually loses interest in the relationship and gains enthusiasm for her own writing and her compelling thesis supervisor.
Her withdrawal initiates a reversal, sparking Jorge’s desire for her and a relationship tug-ofwar is initiated – a situation mirrored by Jorge’s friends, married couple, Darío and Cristina.
Strikingly realistic and engrossing performances from both couples result in bittersweet circumstances that portray relationship complications with an honesty rarely seen. This is an intelligent, sophisticated enquiry into how we express love and what constitutes a successful relationship.
