In this downbeat and drawn-out story of personal woe in exile, Martin (Federico Luppi) takes his daughter and leaves Uruguay to live in a specific city in northwestern Spain. Passing himself off as a basketball coach (a total scam -- he knows zip about the game), he manages to support the two of them and at the same time, he goes out looking for the woman he once loved. Meanwhile, his wife's divorce lawyer is requesting the daughter to come home and live with her mother, and when Martin finally hunts down his former lover, she has about as much interest in him as his estranged wife. The exiled Uruguayan is definitely between a rock and a hard place, as his circumstances deteriorate from there.
