A single mother in Madrid sees her only son die on his 17th birthday as he runs to seek an actress's autograph. She goes to Barcelona to find the lad's father, a transgender woman named Lola who does not know she has a child. First she finds her friend, Agrado, a wild yet caring transgender woman; through her she meets Rosa, a young nun bound for El Salvador, but instead finds out she is pregnant by Lola. Manuela becomes the personal assistant of Huma Rojo, the actress her son admired, by helping Huma manage Nina, the co-star and Huma's lover. However, Agrado soon takes over when Manuela must care for Hermana Rosa's risky pregnancy. With echos of Lorca, "All About Eve," and " A Streetcar Named Desire," the mothers (and fathers and actors) live out grief, love, and friendship.

During the Spanish Civil …
During the Spanish Civil War, a movie troupe goes from Spain to Berlin for a joint production with UFA. Besides the jealousies and sexual escapades of any movie set, culture and politics add to the tensions: they use Jewish and Gypsy prisoners as extras to give an Andalucian look, the director is sleeping with his ingénue with no intention of leaving his wife, and the ingénue cooperates with this Nazi project in hopes of freeing her father from one of Franco's jails. When Goebbels himself plies her with favors, the director and the rest of the crew encourage her to sleep with him for the good of the production. Does she have any options? Will anyone act unselfishly?
