Meanwhile, Julia's daughter, Marina, lives blaming her mother for her father's death. This peculiar world is completed by characters like Candela (a woman desperately looking for someone to love her and the only thing she gets are nights full of loveless sex), Catalina (a former celluloid star who is addicted to cocaine) or a group of teenagers whose personal relationships are marked by the disinterest of parents and the media.

“I wanted to show that four sequences that seem isolated from each other are combined into one story. Unlike the world of feature films, in reality, it is common for all events to appear scattered. It is a fictional world created by me. This film attempts to compose the fictional world in a slightly different way and examines the existence of life/representation somewhere between reality/movie."
