Dr. Juan (40) has survived a shipwreck, from which he was only able to save his pre-teen niece (or daughter?), Tamara and mentally handicapped brother, Alfonso. Behind him, in a different city, he left a past as dramatic and capricious as the winds that lash the Atlantic Coast of Cádiz, which he chose as his new home to escape from his memories. In this out-of-the way place, he meets Maribel, his maid, and Sara, another "outsider" and newcomer like himself. They unexpectedly help him face the memories that torment him relentlessly: a star-crossed love affair with his brother's wife, and the mysterious death of the brother he both loved best and hated most: Damián.
