After 9/11 the great memories come back to Gabriel Donato's mind. He had been in Brooklyn for twenty years, protected from his origins and mistakes, working as a decryptor for a secret agency of the American government and living an orderly love with a standard woman. His professional life and family life collapse like the towers of the World Trade Center, and he decides to return to Tangier, his hometown.

At the same time, in Madrid, professor Sara Benuriel experiences the fatigue of her profession, the breakup of her partner and the senile dementia of her mother. On Good Friday, his mother dies as all the women of her line have: reliving events of the last five centuries as if they were present. Sara relapses into alcoholism and one day has the omen that Gabriel will return.

That's right: when they are fifty, Gabriel and Sara meet again in Cádiz. Their destinations are chained, but they can no longer communicate. They live different worlds: he is naive, linear and recent like Brooklyn; she is deep, millennial and wise as Babylon.
