This Mexican drama comprised of three separate intermeshed storylines is centered around a fictionalized modern filmmaker, Juan (Arturo Rios). In the first one, Juan is depressed after his girlfriend left him for another man. He begins having violent fits of anger in his efforts to get her back. In the second one, Juan also tries to deal with his father's death. The viewer is given few details about it, except that it happened on the day 10-year old Juan first saw the ocean. The story's third level focuses upon the screenplay Juan is writing. It is about the Spanish conquest of Mexico and an angel. The angel symbolizes his father.
