A handsome writer struggles to reveal the truth to the suicidal woman he has fallen for in this intimate Spanish comedy. Though Luis' womanizing ways have found him romancing countless women, a rich older woman's promise to have her book editor husband publish his novel finds him a kept man. The deal goes south, however, and Luis must flee the scene in women's clothing; the situation becomes unfathomably more complicated when, on his way home, Luis meets the beautiful Virginia as she prepares to end her life by jumping from a bridge. After convincing her to abandon her suicidal perch, Virginia invites "Luisa" back to her apartment for a night of personal conversation. Though he vows not to reveal his true identity to the unsuspecting Virginia, his blossoming feeling for her makes withholding the truth increasingly difficult as the night rolls on.
