Fernando, a young criminologist who lives in Madrid, travels to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to meet Magaly again. She is a Cuban woman he defended in Court many years ago, whom he helped escape by providing her with a false passport.
He is married and has a four-year-old daughter and is reaching the critical point in the failure of his marriage. He aims at beginning a new life. Magaly is a dominating and fascinating woman.
