Angélica Liddell prepares her next play and Manuel Fernández-Valdés resolves to portray her in a movie. Liddell has become one of the main European playwrights with an autobiographical theater where she exposes her innermost pain. A decision that affects the essence of his way of working and to all people who work with her. Each one must decide how far is willing to reach. The director of the film will not remain oblivious to the experience. "Angélica [a tragedy]" is a film about a devout of art and about the troubled relationship between creation and life.
