Two pianists fall in love with the same woman.

Two pianists, childhood friends in Barcelona (Dòria and Rossell), meet in Paris in the 1930s as young men, and become a part of the avant-garde musical scene of the time. Both of them fall in love with the same woman, they are very talented. Hearing news of the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Rossell decides to return to Spain and fight for the Republican cause, while Dòria remains in Paris saying that music is the only cause he wants to support.
Forty years later, they meet again in a sordid cabaret in Barcelona. Rossell is the pianist accompanying the transvestite show. Dòria arrives surrounded by admirers.

A production of
Massa d’Or Produccions and Tornasol Films in coproduction with Pierre Javaux Productions and Arte, with the participation of Televisión Española, Televisió de Catalunya, Departament de Cultura de la Generalitat de Catalunya and ICAA.
