In the Official Competition, a billionaire decides to produce a legendary film and looks for the best in the industry. Renowned director Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz) is chosen to direct, and is soon joined by two incredibly talented actors: Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas), adored in Hollywood, and the radical theater actor Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez).
They're both legends, but not good friends. When Lola tests them more and more eccentrically, Félix and Iván will have not only to face each, but also re-evaluate themselfs.
