Gabi, a 30 year old writer, returns to Barcelona to pick up a
prestigious award for erotic literature, after three years of
experiencing life on the edge in Madrid. Her reputation as well
as a rumour that she recieved the award in return for personal
favours, causes Gabi to rush out of a press conference. She takes
refuge at the home of her best friend Raquel.
Gabi meets Jalil, an Indian Muslim, at a 24-hour florist near
Raquel's apartment. They fall in love and spend the summer together.
Problems arise after he visits his family in India. Differences
