40-year-old Mariana leads a nice middle-class life. All that's missing is a child. At least if you ask her husband Pedro, who keeps pressuring her to try artificial insemination. Mariana herself really only seems interested in her dog Neptuno. Then she meets Juan, a riding instructor and former Lt. Colonel. But Juan has a dark secret which links him to Mariana's family.
