César (Eduardo Noriega) is vain, rich and charming. His womanising ways often irritate his best friend, Pelayo (Fele Martinez), who is not surpnsed when César moves in on Sofia (Penelope Cruz), a beautiful young woman who happens to be his date for César`s birthday party.
César decides to use her to extricate himself from the clutches of Nuria (Najwa Nimri), a one-night stand who has steadfastly reflised to accept his rejection. But to his surprise, César finds himself falling for Sofia.
Running into Nuria the next day, César reluctantly accepts a lift in her car. But Nuria drives off the road, killing herself and permanently destroying César`s once handsome face.
Awakening in a psychiatric prison for a murder he does not remember committing and prompted to wear an expressionless mask to hide his scarred face, César, with the help of a sympathetic psychiatrist, tries to make sense of recent events.
As he does so, his life begins to umavel. Reality and fantasy blend together and César is terrified that if he cannot uncover the truth, no matter how fearful it may be, he will have no future...
