Álvaro lives a dull life working as a clerk at a notary’s office in Seville dreaming of one day becoming an author. His wife never dreamt of becoming an author yet she's the one whose first novel ends up being a best-seller. Couple's separation pushes Alvaro to finally realize his dream of writing a great novel. But when he finally sits down to write, he can't do it – everything he puts down on paper rings false. He not only lacks talent, but imagination as well. Guided by his writing teacher, Juan, Alvaro discovers that truly great fiction is drawn from reality and so embarks on a mission to create his own story. By manipulating his friends and neighbors, Alvaro gets his plot, but will his true story have a happy ending?
