A Coruña, 1885. Marcela meets Elisa on her first day of school, starting a great friendship from then on. As time goes by, Marcela's parents start to distrust of their relationship and they decide to send Marcela away to boarding school, looking to put an end to their suspicion. Years pass, but their feelings for each other haven't changed one bit. When Marcela returns to Galicia, she looks for Elisa in order to begin a happy life together. However, rumours flourish in town, forcing them to devise a plan: Elisa leaves town for a while to come back as Mario and marry Marcela. Nothing will be easy for this forbidden love. This is the story of the first same-sex marriage in Spain since the Roman Imperial era, which took place on 8 June 1901.
