    • Fer, a veteran and run down publicity agent, arrives to Menorca. There he is hosted by his great friend Miguel Angel, former creative director of an important advertising agency, who enjoys a golden retirement in his wonderful Minorcan house. The purpose of the trip is to make a documentary, although the real reason is to spend some relaxing days and recover the old days friendship. Miguel Angel introduces Fer to his friends in the island, among them Nuria, an sculptor who lives with her daughter in Cala San Esteve where she's set up her 'atelier' into an old munitions dump. Fer is inmediately attracted by the work and the flair of Nuria and decides to include her in his documentary. He settles into Nuria's house with the excuse of filming her and her work more easily. But Nuria has to leave for work and Fer has to remain alone in the house looking after Max the dog and Olivia, Nuria's teenager daughter, who's just broken up with her boyfriend.
