In a small, isolated house on a remote coast, next to a violent sea lives Amancio, with only his widowed mother Elvira for company. Amancio is a middle-aged man with the mind of a small child. Caring and imaginative, his days pass by while his obsessive mother overprotects him with an incestuous and unhealthy love/hate. The only contact he has with other people is with Iria, a young government social worker who he is innocently in love with, and Pedro, an old, philosophical fisherman who seems to be the only human who lives in the area.
Amancio often escapes from his sickening place and makes the steep landscapes of the coast his world. There he likes to create adventures that make him evade his gray and asphyxiating daily life. On a nearby beach he finds assorted objects rejected by the sea, and he hides them in a cave that only he knows. The place where he collects these pieces is his sanctuary, his secret, where he spends hours constructing his rich inner world.
One morning, on one of his walks on the beach, Amancio finds a strange capsule that seems to have something mysterious inside. Hypnotized by its almost supernatural shapes, and by the unreal sound it gives off, he hides it as the best of his treasures in his sanctuary, not daring to open it. Before long he’ll discover that there are dangerous people asking around the area, looking for that object, and that his life and the lives of the people he knows are in serious danger because of it. He will see how chilling deaths arrive suddenly to that isolated place, at the hand of two eccentric and hyper-violent gangsters that want that capsule, and won’t stop committing all types of atrocities until they get it. Pursued and isolated in a beautiful and worn landscape, the destiny of Amancio crosses with that of the mysterious object, which has brought violence to the place, and which will be more tied than he thinks to the actions that will take place.
