Rosario (Marisa Paredes), her
daughter Elena (Ana Torrent) and her granddaughter Beatriz (Marta
Larralde) leave their hometown and set out for a weekend at a hotel
in the mountains. Each of them has ulterior plans and motives
unbeknownst to the others.
Rosario has discovered that she has
an incurable disease. Elena has been told by her husband to inform
her mother that she cannot continue living with them in the family
house, and her daughter Beatriz wants to flee from her
Elena's unpleasant task becomes
more complicated with the appearance of Fernando (Chema Muñoz), her
lover, who shows up at the hotel. The weekend poses a dramatic
confrontation between the three women, during which they get to
know each other better and learn the difficult lessons of freedom.
Elena is the only one who returns to the city. At the train
station, she announces to her husband and to her daughter's
boyfriend - who have gone over to meet her there - that she has
many things to tell them.
