Hèctor Amat is a troubled actor. After being an accidental witness in the murder of a young girl, he suffers an anxiety block. He can’t remember anything that happened. To alleviate his condition, and get his memory back, Hèctor turns to Eugènia Llort, the therapist who treated him after the crime. Their relationship is at first merely professional but, as time goes by, he becomes increasingly dependent. He is unable to perform unless she is present at the theater every night while he plays Dick Diver — the character in Tender is the Night. Like his own character — a psichologist who falls in love with a patient —, Hèctor will end up falling madly for his therapist.
