The peaceful coexistence in a small community of Spanish engineers working abroad crumbles when an affair comes to light between one of the men and the wife of another. In just a few days, the colony’s fragile web of complicities, small hypocrisies and pent-up desires collapses, and a world of sex, deceit and long-unrealised dreams comes to the surface.

A masterfully narrated story dealing with an eternally relevant topic: relationships between couples and how they evolve, are transformed and die...or give rise to others.
