Thanks to a radio contest, a young woman wins a four-day vacation in a hotel in Ostende, a sea resort near Buenos Aires. It is the low season, and she gets to the place alone; her boyfriend will join her a few days later. On the beach there’s plenty of sun but also too much wind; and a not very sophisticated bar with a waiter who talks too much. In this place with no obligations or big attractions the girl starts to pay attention to some strange attitudes by an old man who’s accompanied by two young women. When her boyfriend arrives, he interrupts like a representative of the outside world, that same world she has been slowly distancing herself from in just a couple of days to enter with pleasure – with the adrenaline of curiosity – into this beach-set, intriguing micro-cosmos that might be filled with stories she doesn’t know. On the contrary, Laura Citarella shows in her debut film that she does know stories, and that’s why she flirts with Hitchcock and Rohmer from a feminine, light, and graceful perspective.
