Naive, love-struck Victor (Liberto Rabal) attempts to seduce wealthy, strung-out junkie Elena (Francesca Neri), the woman with whom he shares his first sexual experience.

One night, the obsessive Victor pays an unexpected visit to the disinterested Elena. Two cops, David (Javier Bardem) and Sancho (Jose Sancho), violently burst into Elena's apartment and, ultimately, into her and Victor's lives. The aftermath leaves David a paraplegic and Victor with a six year prison term.

Victor watches helplessly as David becomes a Paralympics basketball star and marries Elena. On his release from prison, a chance meeting with the couple gives Victor the taste of revenge. Love, desire and betrayal climax with consequences which are both intensely sexual and deadly.
