Sinopsis / Synopsis:
An actress and a filmmaker rehearse a film script.
The script gathers fragments from the diary that Mara Dolores Gonzlez Katarain, Yoyes, wrote during her exile in Mexico between 1980 and 1985, right after she quit ETA, the armed organization she had led for some time. As the script unfolds, glimpses and references to other women gradually emerge amidst Yoyes' words: Ulrike Meinhof, Simone de Beauvoir, Roco Dazescobar, Alexandra Kollontai, Tina Modotti.
Meanwhile, it gets darker outside.
