Penรฉlope Cruz plays an eccentric director who is hired by a rich man (Humberto) to make a film. Humberto announces his desire to leave some sort of legacy beyond wealth. He initially considers paying for a bridge with his name on it and then donating it to the government but decides instead to buy the rights to a critically acclaimed work of literature and finance a film adaptation.

The film observes the director and the lead actors exploring their characters, projecting their neuroses onto each other and occasionally playing mind games.

Official Competition's tight focus and sharp humour have a universal appeal.
