This is the story of an erotic journey by Francisco Piedras, a baker in a small Spanish fishing village. He came to town as a semi virgin when he met and married Maria, the owner of a pastry shop. Tragedy strikes when Maria’s sister dies leaving her daughter Amapola to live with them. Francisco finds Amapola’s blossoming sexuality infatuating, but he is a moral man and will not touch her.
Maria’s dwindling sexuality is awakened by a doctor she met at the sanitarium where her sister was being treated. She slips away from town under false pretenses and has a wild sexual fling with Dr. Manolo – unaware that the doctor has a leaning towards sexual perversion. As she returns to the village by bus, Maria is in a terrible crash causing her to fall into a coma.
There are dark times just around the corner.
Paco, though still in love with Maria and obsessed with Amapola, turns to Amelia a sophisticated woman at the height of her sexuality, while married to a retired army General. Their affair is animalistic and earthy for Amelia is in control – until Amapola comes to terms with her own blooming sexuality and desire for Francisco.
Francisco is torn between his deep emotional bond to Maria, the animal magnetism of Amelia and his obsession with the sweet coming of age of Amapola.
