Storyline

A few weeks before getting married, Álex has a brief but intense relationship with Susanna, a teenager who lives under the tutelage of a woman who exploits her. The handling of Álex and his small embezzlement to the company for which he works takes him to jail. Shortly after leaving, he moves with his pregnant wife Muntsa to a town on the coast. The wedding of a friend takes him to his old neighborhood in Barcelona and everything leads to a reunion with Susanna, now about to marry Said, a Moroccan butcher from the neighborhood. Unable to avoid it, Álex and Susanna restart their relationships, now more furious and dangerous than ever, spurred by fear and guilt. Insanely jealous Alex arranges Said's murder. Tragedy ensues when things don't go according to plan.
