María Fernanda is a Colombian scholar who feels doubly foreign when she lands in an Argentine residence in Madrid. There, in the beginnings of the eighties, she meets Gabriel, a strange and “dark” man from Buenos Aires with whom she starts a relationship mediated by letters, by the need to live every instant and by the bittersweet feeling of goodbyes.

The story of an elusive love that thrives on Pessoa’s poems, on authors from the Latin American boom, on the passion for movies… Subtly framed in the political situation from the countries that are joined by this novel: the end of the Argentine military dictatorship, the Falklands War and the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo; the “Spanish destape” and the triumph of socialism; and the Colombia from the “Security Statute”.
