Julio del Toro, a successful writer nudging fifty, has always had his wife Miriam, his daughter Milly, his lover Silvia and obviously his career completely under his control.

Until one day, on returning from one of his frequent trips abroad he sees this reassuring, coherent world collapse: his daughter has started a sentimental relationship with a Spaniard older than him; his lover gives him a serious ultimatum; a young journalist starts to prepare a report on his work questioning whether or not he is finished as a creator.

Then the real problem of this writer comes to the surface; his incapacity to make decisions, to adapt to new contexts, his insecurity in relation to his own life.

Julio del Toro, escritor de éxito, bordeando los cincuenta, ha tenido siempre bajo su control a su esposa Miriam, su hija Milly, su amante Silvia y, por supuesto, su carrera profesional.

Pero un día de regreso de uno de sus frecuentes viajes al extranjero, vera caer en crisis ese mundo tranquilizador y coherente. Al tiempo que Julio se siente cada vez más confuso y desorientado, las mujeres a su alrededor tomaran las decisiones que él no es capaz de asumir, y llevaran sus vidas por caminos insospechados.
