An elderly man is forced to come to terms with his age and his future in this drama from director Mario Camus. Alfonso (Alvaro de Luna) is in his early Seventies and while he still feels sharp, looking after Nanda (Mari Gonzalez), who cared for him as a child and has only a short time to live, is making him painfully aware of his mortality.
Luisa (Marian Aguilera) is a social worker who keeps tabs on Nanda, and through her Alfonso meets her brother Martin (Oscar Abad), who hopes to turn his passion for bike racing into a career. Alfonso was a passionate cyclist in his youth, and he becomes a mentor to the younger man as he looks back on his lost youth.
Meanwhile, Luisa is looking for new excitement in her own life, and thinks she's found it in a romance with Ramiro (Antonio de la Torre), a mechanic who works on motorcycles.
