1996. In happy post-olympic Barcelona lives Jacobo Vidal, a lawyer by profession, despotic and authoritarian man determined to control all aspects of his existence and that of his children. Obsessive and dysfunctional father, he does not hesitate to overcome any obstacle that interferes with the well-being of his family to force him into his own vision of the world, turning his children into victims of an excess of paternal love. But life is unpredictable and sixteen years later, in the midst of the global economic crisis, Jacobo is perplexed as to how his life does not correspond to what he had planned. Projection of the first two episodes.
