Laura Munar, a professor of literature at an institute in Palma de Mallorca and recently separated from Iván, her lifelong boyfriend, stays for dinner one night with Xavier Vera, a renowned surgeon on the island and father of one of her students.
The next morning, Laura wakes up alone in her bed with nausea and a great emptiness in her memory. What begins as a physical malaise soon becomes a terrible suspicion: Xavier has drugged and raped her.
With the help of her sister Cata, who works as an anesthetist in the same hospital as Xavier, Laura goes to the police to report Vera for rape. The inspectors Daniela Bauzá and Víctor Silva are in charge of the investigation.
The absence of other stronger evidence makes the case reduced to a question of who to believe: the respectable surgeon who says they had a spoiled relationship or the institute teacher with a history of complaints of harassment and psychological disorders.
Frustrated by the inability of the judicial system to lock her rapist, Laura takes all kinds of actions against Xavier Vera on her own. The duel between Laura and Xavier will increase in intensity until they are taken to extreme situations that put their respective lives at risk.¿}¿¿+
