The film tells the story of Emília de Sousa, the best Portuguese stage actress from the late 19th century, who gave up on her career to become baroness Madalena do Mar, in Madeira Island. Her beauty was as great as Sissi's, an Austrian Empress with whom she spent time in the Winter of 1860-1861. To entertain herself, Emília invented a mystery that lasted four generations. Rosamunde, her descendent, tries to figure out what the secret is, which will bring tragic consequences.
