Sa mère vient de mourir. Son père n’est pas celui qu’elle croyait. Prise entre un passé incertain qu’elle ne connaît qu’à travers les photos laissées par sa mère et la perspective d’un mariage qu’elle ne désire pas réellement, Elisa se lance à la recherche de la vérité. Sa quête d’un père supposé, qui est aussi une fuite en avant, la mène de Paris à Lisbonne, des fantômes de la contestation des années 70 à un présent hypothétique. Elle y croise des morts qui parlent, des mémoires qui flanchent, des tortionnaires à la retraite, de sémillants jeunes gens et au fil de ces rencontres, navigue de doute en doute et de mystère en mystère. Mais connaît-on jamais le fin mot d’une histoire ?

Casares (Federico Luppi) and Carmen (Marisa Paredes) operate a small home for orphans in a remote part of Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Helping the couple mind the orphanage are Jacinto (Eduardo Noriega), the groundskeeper, and Conchita (Irene Visedo), a teacher who is also involved with Jacinto. Casares and Carmen are aligned with the Republican loyalists, and are hiding a large cache of gold that's used to back the Republican treasury; perhaps not coincidentally, the orphanage has also been subject to attacks from Franco's troops, and a defused bomb sits in the home's courtyard. One day, a boy named Carlos (Fernando Tielve) arrives at the home, looking for a place to stay after being left behind by his parents. Casares and Carmen take him in, and the boy soon strikes up an unlikely friendship with Jaime (Íñigo Garcés), a boy with a reputation for tormenting other kids. But Carlos soon begins having visions of a mysterious apparition he can't identify, and hears strange stories about a child named Santi who went missing the day the bomb appeared near the orphanage.
