Paloma is a young psychiatrist, hired to work as a director of a clinic in Galicia, and is attracted to Mario, her very first patient. He suffers from a rare form of amnesia, commonly known as Korsakoff’s syndrome. As a result, both his short- and long-term memories are affected, and he has temporary lapses of perception. However, Paloma finds Mario to be a fascinating individual, not just a regular patient.
Intrigued, she decides to explore Mario’s past, and, through their dialogues, their relationship takes an unexpected turn. (Filmaffinity)
