Andre (Fernando Rey) has a charming house by the sea in Portugal, a home which contains all his childhood memories and attachments. Above all else this imminent divorce is bringing back memories of his mother and her untimely death, but also the death of his father in the Spanish Civil War. He begins to realize that the little town was once all he knew. As these images take him back to his childhood, he knows he has to loosen the hold the childhood relationships still have over him and finally face his divorce and the loss of this house and everything that goes with it -- a very difficult demand in this time of personal crisis.
