- Synopsis / Plot
- Diego (Eduardo Noriega) is a hospital doctor who specialises in managing pain in terminally ill patients. He is presented - particularly in one stand off with an impetuous but sincere trainee doctor Juanjo (Marcel Borras) - as a man who protects himself by not getting emotionally involved. This detachment extends to his stalled relationships with wife Pilar (Cristina Plazas) and daughter Ainhoa (Clara Lago). When one of his patients (Angie Cepeda) tries to commit suicide with the painkillers he has prescribed and ends up in a coma, her lover Armand (Carlos Leal) confronts Diego and shoots him at point blank range before turning the gun on himself. Inexplicably, Diego comes round in the emergency room, covered in blood but apparently unscathed. This is the beginning of a chain of events that will see Diego connecting with Armand’s widow Isabel (The Sea Inside’s Belén Rueda).
