A spa-town hotel in northern Argentina. Sixteen-year-old Amalia lives there with her divorced mother, Helena, who runs the establishment. She wanders around at will, from laundry room to swimming pool. With her friend Josefina, she discusses religious calling and her first pangs of love. When a medical convention is held at the hotel, Helena attracts the attention of one of its attendees, Doctor Jano. She is unaware that this well-known specialist and family man has inappropriately fondled Amalia during a street gathering. The upset teenager decides to save the doctor from his sins… A film of exacerbated sensuality, with a strange and languorous atmosphere, a tale of good and evil, of an age where eroticism – often not recognised as such – becomes more pressing.
