In a standard tale of decadence and ennui, Jorge (Juan Manuel Montesinos) decides to cut back on his drinking, behave himself, sell the hacienda he owns in the remote Venezuelan countryside, and live in the city with his wife Aida (Aminta de Lara). She is sure to go mad if she has to stay one more day isolated from civilization. After the buyer arrives to inspect the holdings, trouble starts. He brings along his son Arturo (Jorge Diaz) and an alluring woman by the name of Isabel (Maria Eugenia Carrasco). The trio soon get involved in a series of relationships that are anything but healthy and do not bode well for the future of Jorge and Aida and the possibility of finally moving to the city.
