A young man, Victor (Sbaraglia), arrives in Paris where his family have gathered around his seriously ill father Max (Fernán Gómez), a former mogul now deteriorating physically and mentally. Max begins to behave very strangely, as his memories and those of Spain's past begin to cloud his mind. He becomes terrified of the staff taking care of him and tries to escape from the clinic in order to find a man named Rancel. The rest of his family assume Max is mad and quickly begin to squabble of dividing up his inheritance, but Victor becomes convinced that his father is being troubled by real events, and is resolved to find out why.
