Summary En una ciudad del norte de España viven Agustín, su mujer, Julia, y Estrella, la hija de ambos, que va creciendo fascinada por su padre, de quien observa todos sus actos. Así descubre que en la vida de él hay un gran secreto.
In the North of Spain, Estrella grows up captivated by her father, a doctor with mystical powers, and by the enigma of his youth in the South, a near-mythical region whose secrets seem to haunt him more and more as time goes on. Though Erice's original vision also encompassed a long section set in the South itself, which was never made, it remains an experience of rare perfection and satisfaction.
