In the opening scene two men are seated next to each other at an avant-garde ballet performance by the Pina Bausch company. Benigno is deeply moved by what is happening in front of his eyes and when he turns to Marco, he sees that he is crying.

Benigno is a male nurse at a private hospital who spends most of his time looking after Alicia, a ballet dancer who was injured in a traffic accident. He finds himself becoming infatuated with her. Now Benigno lavishes her with attention and care, convinced that she can hear what he is saying and sense the love that is coming her way.

Marco is a journalist who was assigned to interview Lydia, a well-known female bullfighter. Lydia is gored by the bull, and is now in a coma. Alicia and Lydia are both housed in the same ward of the same hospital, and in time Benigno and Marco become close friends.

Alicia becomes pregnant mystically. Benigno is arrested. When he gets to know Alicia has been recovered he leaves a message to Marco that he arranges to escape.
