This is the story of an erotic journey by Francisco Piedras, a baker in a small Spanish fishing village. He came to town as a semi virgin when he met and married Maria, the owner of a pastry shop. Tragedy strikes when Maria’s sister dies leaving her daughter Amapola to live with them. Francisco finds Amapola’s blossoming sexuality infatuating, but he is a moral man and will not touch her. Maria’s dwindling sexuality is awakened by a doctor she met at the sanitarium where her sister was being treated. She slips away from town under false pretenses and has a wild sexual fling with Dr. Manolo – unaware that the doctor has a leaning towards sexual perversion. Paco, though still in love with Maria and obsessed with Amapola, turns to Amelia a sophisticated woman at the height of her sexuality. Their affair is animalistic and earthy for Amelia is in control – until Amapola comes to terms with her own blooming sexuality and desire for Francisco.
