Pablo and Tina are brothers, but they both have complicated sexlives. Pablo writes and directs plays and films; he's gay and deeply in love with Juan, a young man who won't return Pablo's affection. Tina is a transsexual, angry at men. Pablo gets involved with Antonio, a youth who becomes jealous of Pablo's love for Juan. Antonio seeks out Juan, and violence leads to Pablo's grief and a temporary loss of memory. When memory returns, he learns that Antonio himself got involved with Tina. In horror, he hurries to Tina's rescue and must face Antonio and his desire.
