The empty beach (La playa vacía)

Love is repaid with love.

On a desolate beach at the end of summer, Victoria, the protagonist, cannot conceive the idea of spending the winter alone.
To avoid this, she decides to seduce Pablo, a young man responsible for the beach’s maintenance, who is interested in Victoria solely for the financial gain she represents to him.

A dark relationship develops between the two of them until, one fine morning, the corpse of a woman named Tana washes ashore, prompting Victoria and Pablo to question what they truly know about each other.

Together, they embark on a quest for the truth: Who is Tana? Why has her body appeared on the beach? And most importantly, who is the person each of them is sharing their life with?
