This romantic fantasy finds Eduardo (Alfredo Landa) as the mild-mannered groom whose honeymoon is interrupted when his wife goes to care for her sick mother. He dreams he murders his wife and takes up with her narcissistic friend Dora whom he then kills. He goes on to have an affair with Veronique, the dope-smoking hippie girl, who convinces him to help her and her friends put on a theater engagement. The show goes so badly the crowd beats up the actors. Taking up with the beautiful Sebastiana, the duo are shipwrecked and Eduardo discovers his girlfriend is an uncontrollable sex fiend. Eduardo awakens from his daydream to finds himself about to marry his bride-to-be. After the ceremony, his wife falls down the steps of the church and dies. As he visits her grave, he meets a young widow, and love lives on in the cemetery as the two amorously embrace with little regard or respect for the dearly departed around them.
