Cocaine-snorting homosexual hedonist writer-director Pablo Quintero is bereft because his boyfriend Juan has just moved out. Pablo meets Antonio at a party, and they share a few passionate nights, but Antonio soon proves far too clingy for Pablo's taste. All hell breaks loose when Antonio comes across a sad, yearning love note from Juan, which ignites in Antonio a bonfire of jealous possessiveness.

Diego is a matador unable to practice his craft after being badly gored. Maria is a successful Madrid lawyer.

Thanks to Angel, Diego and Maria finally meet. They might have gone through life forever unfulfilled were it not for him -- now they have each found someone with whom to share the ultimate pleasure. All that remains for them is the execution of their Liebestod
