It's 1980 in a city in northern Mexico. A peculiar-looking man visits a bridal shop every day. Not to buy but to visit his beloved: a mannequin whose eyes awakened in him a memory of tragic love. Little by little, we will enter this world where reality depends on which side the window is viewed from.
