Recently deceased, Mikel was a bourgeois pharmacist and Basque militant. Through flashbacks, Uribe shows, in the context of an agitated Basque Country, how he tries to cope with a marriage in crisis while coming to terms with his newly-revealed homosexuality, and how he is rejected by his party comrades and his extremely traditional mother when his relationship with a transvestite becomes public.
