Laura Munar, a recently single high school teacher in Palma de Mallorca, has a date with Xavier Vera, a reputable surgeon on the island and the father of one of her students. The next morning, Laura wakes up alone in her bed feeling nauseous and with several hours missing from her memory and soon comes to the terrible realisation that Xavier has drugged and raped her. With the help of her sister, Cata, who works as an anaesthesiologist at the same hospital as Xavier, Laura goes to the police to report Vera for rape. Inspectors Daniela Bauza and Victor Silva are in charge of the investigation, but with the absence of any conclusive evidence – it’s a matter of who they choose to believe: the respected surgeon who claims it was consensual sex, or the high school teacher with a history of harassment reports and psychological disorders. Frustrated by the judicial system, Laura embarks on a path of actions against Xavier Vera. The duel between Laura and Xavier intensifies, leading them to extremes in which both their lives are in danger.
