This movie has any coherent plot. It is more the portrait of the lives of different people in the hard years of post-war in Spain (the 40's), and how people manage to survive in a country desolated by the war. Like other films: la colmena or roma (fellini) it shows us lots of characters and some moments of their lives.

In addition, the 2h 30min it has does not help to make it easier. Not like la colmena (90 min) or Roma (100 min), the enormous longness of the movie makes it so hard and so awful that, despite the fact it is very well filmed, it has most of better Spanish actors and the scenes are interesting, the result is a boring never-ending film that could have been better if being shorter.
