The novel describes three moments in the life of Elena, a young woman that lives in Buenos Aires and works in a big public theatre as secretary. She goes back to her little town to spend summer vacations at her mother house. Once there, she slowly readapts to the place, the language and the landscape, before entering into a journey where present and past get mixed.
