The youth and loves of one of the most important playwrights in Spanish literature, covering Lope's return with the Spanish Armada in 1582, the years of poverty in Madrid and the way he inventively managed to triumph in the worlds of both the theatre and love.
This film is also the story of the two women who marked his life: his passionate affairs with Elena Osorio, the married daughter of Jerónimo Velázquez, the most important theatre impresario in 16th-century Madrid; and Isabel de Urbina, a young woman from a well-to-do family who, secretly in love with Lope, consented to being spirited away by him.
