1998. Isabel, a journalism student, is forced to do her internship at the newspaper in a small Galician coastal town to finish her degree. When she arrives, she wants to start investigating as soon as possible, to demonstrate everything she has learned to become a true journalist. But the position assigned to her is the last one she expected: the writing and management of the obituaries that come to the newsroom. But this, which might seem boring at first, becomes the door to an investigation that will take her to different parts of the Spanish geography in search of an impossible love story.
