On Spain’s Costa Brava, passion and intrigue are everywhere - especially in the hearts of those who dwell there. As the dictator Franco teeters on the edge of death - a death that will completely overturn the political structure of Spain - two couples are entwined. One, a husband and wife bored with the existence they have drifted into. The other, a passionate, combative pair who relish every moment of life. Into this potent mix a young American arrives, seeking his missing lover - bringing a shadow of danger into the machinations already at work.
Soon the political tension in the country reaches the breaking point, and that danger becomes an all-too-stark reality…as a heartrending misunderstanding unravels the fragile bonds of love and loyalty, and leads to a tragedy that will forever change the lives of everyone it touches.

This story seems to wander aimlessly from scene to scene like a teenager seeking alcohol, then getting totally lost in it. There is an occasional burst of action followed by aimless waffle.
