17-year-old Natividad is bored with her life at home and in her village. She spends her time between the tense relationship with her mother and a flirt with Leandro, and she dreams of traveling around the world. Benjamin, fiftyish and fat, is considered to be the village fool and lives under the heal of his sister Micaela. He is in love with Natividad and, incited by friends, decides to kidnap her. Benjamin keeps Natividad in his home hoping to seduce her. The girl adapts to the situation and plays cannily with the power she has over the devoted Benjamin and Micaela's secrets.
