This coming-of-age drama is set in Cadiz, a town in Southern Spain, in 1965, as the nation was entering its final decade of Fascist rule. Ramon (Eloy Azorin), Nicolas (Inaki Font), and Alfonso (Roberto Hoyas) are three friends whose parents have sent them to Cadiz so that they can study without distraction for their medical school entrance exams. But distraction finds them in the form of four young women from a ragtag local dance troupe, Marian (Chusa Barbero), Vicky (Emma Suarez), Perla (Beatriz Bergamin), and Chon (Ana Malaver). The girls supplement their meager wages as dancers by turning tricks on the side, but they soon become quite friendly with the fresh-faced boys from the North, and tart-tongued Vicki becomes involved with Ramon, the most innocent and sheltered of the three, much to the amazement of Nicolas and Alfonso. Soon Vicky gives Ramon a crash course in the mysteries of women, but Ramon finds out the hard way that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing; Vicky announces she's pregnant, and Ramon isn't sure about what to do, especially since he has a girlfriend at home -- the tense and high-strung Rocio (Pilar Lopez de Ayala).
