At 'The Seagull', a house with a weathercock, built outside a Northern town, lives Agustin, a doctor and water diviner: Julia, his wife, and Est:-ella, their daughter. The film, with great simplicity, tells the story of Estrella's growth and the fascinatîon she feels for her father. One day by sheer hazard, she discovers something that leads her to suspect that there has been another woman in her father's life. From that day onwards, life at 'The Seagull' wil! change. But Estrella will never learn the true identity of this woman, who, as her father knows, has definitely remained in the south.
