A young Russian woman named Natasha is soon to be married and is on holiday in Rome where she meets Alba. She accompanies Alba to her hotel room as a curious acquaintance and stays as a growing friend. In this room in Rome, the two women come to know one another intimately over the course of the night, and explore and discover themselves along the way. Only the break of day threatens to break their newly forged bond. Written by

Julio Medem wrote the part of Alba for Elena Anaya. When the actress accepted the role, she and Medem went to Russia to cast the perfect Dasha. After seeing a lot of actresses, they found the perfect one, but the night before this woman was flying to Spain to start rehearsals, her husband read the screenplay and forbade her to play the role. Funny enough, Medem and Anaya found Natasha Yarovenko while casting in Spain, specifically in Barcelona. See more
In what's meant to be the same scene shown from two different angles, when Natacha's sat on the balcony, she can be seen from the bathroom, but not vice versa where there's a curtain in the way and it's clearly a separate set as there's no trace of the bedroom. See more

I'm sorry, Vadim, but I can never tell you about this. I know you have many secrets about where you've been and the many women you've been with. Now, I have a secret. But it's much further away then yours. I have now been with a woman. I know I'm not lesbian. I know I'm not attracted to other women. Why am I attracted to this one? I am so confused. You'll always have that... my reflection. This... it's mine alone.
