Germán Baraja is a writer. Or, at least, that’s what he tries to be. He hardly survives by freelancing for a French magazine, and he can only think about quitting. The political and social disillusionment, the long hours of confinement, his depression, his return to drugs, a supposed child that he doesn’t acknowledge, the omnipresent violence of a man in his forties who doesn’t believe in anything or anyone anymore and lashes out against everyone as much as himself.
His nonexistent relationship with his mother and her imminent death, which threatens him; the family that he rejects is becoming extinct. Germán tries to give himself one last chance and tries to get back together with Clara, his ex-girlfriend, but it will be hard to recompose what has been a sickly love relationship.
