Uptight, attitude-heavy Pablo (Luis Tosar), stuck in Madrid’s morning gridlock, fumbles for his favourite rock cassette and the ensuing peace of mind it brings him. Thus distracted, he rear-ends the car in front of him. The woman driver, Sonsoles, miffed at the inconvenience, snaps at him but doesn’t flinch at his lewdness as they exchange insurance documents. Subsequently informed of Sonsoles’ bogus claim for personal injury, Pablo is furious, and, bored with life, begins harassing her. He makes threatening, crude phone calls to her in the middle of the night, and even takes to following her. On one of these occasions, she picks up her fifteen year-old sister, Maria (María Valverde) from school, with whom Pablo is instantly and profoundly smitten. The next day, Pablo leaves work to spy on Maria in the schoolyard. Noting the girl’s direct put-down of a pot-smoking classmate, he approaches her as a cop. And something amazing happens. Maria touches Pablo to the core. Young, vital, and bursting with promise, she epitomizes the unrealized ideals he yearns for. More than intelligent enough to realise he’s no cop, Maria, too, is intrigued by this older man who shows such an interest in her, and relishes the companionship and intelligent conversation that is missing from her loner life. There’s palpable sexual tension between them, but what looks like developing into an improper tale, quickly turns into a relationship between equals. Pablo’s connection with Maria collides, however, with Sonsoles’ need to retaliate against her unknown harasser…
