On a dilapidated hotel veranda outside Acapulco in 1940, a disgraced minister on the verge of a nervous breakdown meets a spinster artist looking for a quiet place to finally rest as her dying poet grandfather finishes his opus. Despite the chaos surrounding them - including an angry mob of tourists and a family of gallivanting Nazis - these two strangers miraculously offer each other the means to get through a long and turbulent night.
