synopsis

Lluís Dalmau, a young university lecturer, arrives on an island after being deported for his political activity. It is 1969 and on the island, which is undergoing economic ups and downs, it is debated whether the solution would be the construction of a tourist resort with foreign capital.
Over this background, Dalmau begins an affair with Feli, an attractive farming girl. This is the trigger for Feli’s reassessment of her relationship with Patrice the Belgian, a foreigner with an obscure past who runs the island’s guesthouse. But it is precisely from his shady past that the solution to the island’s problems will emerge.
