Alfonso Zarauza
Recovering from his condition and getting their marriage back on track. Life on the lonely island suits Vicente fine, and he eventually asks his wife to extend their stay and spend the autumn there. He feels better and better every day until, after a shipwreck in the middle of a storm, a mysterious and amnesiac foreign woman appears on the island and bursts into their lives. From that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.
