A famous Spanish actor, Julio Arenas,  disappears while filming a movie. Although his body is never found, the police conclude that he has suffered an accident at a cliff by the sea.

Many years later, the mystery is brought up once more by a TV program that tries to evoke the actor, offering as a scoop images of the last scenes in which he participated, shot by his close friend, director Miguel Garay.

'A slow-burn marvel which climaxes in a sequence of overwhelming profundity and mystery' - David Jenkins, Little White Lies
