Description: An isolated spot in the middle of the sea. An oil rig, where all the workers are men, on which there has been an accident. A solitary, mysterious woman who is trying to forget her past is brought to the rig to look after a man who has been temporarily blinded. A strange intimacy develops between them, a link full of secrets, truths, lies, humor and pain, from which neither of them will emerge unscathed and which will change their lives forever. This is a film about the weight of the past; about the sudden silence that is produced before a storm; about 25 million waves, a Spanish cook and a goose. And, above all else, it's about the power of love even in the most terrible circumstances.
