“Would you like me to tell you about my life?”
Editor Helga Pato is approached with this disconcerting question during a train journey. Her seatmate turns out to be Ángel Sanagustín, a psychiatrist who is specialised in personality disorders.
During the trip, Ángel tells her the sordid and delirious story of the worst clinical case he has ever faced: Martín Urales de Úbeda, an extremely dangerous and paranoid patient obsessed with garbage, amongst many other things, as an instrument of control.
This fortuitous encounter will irremediably mark the future of Helga Pato and all the other characters involved in a series of unpredictable plots that overlap, layer after layer, until they reach a delirious climax.
