An unemployed and intellectual young man, Felipe Montero, finds a job which fulfills his economic needs: an old widow is looking for someone to transcript, make grammar corrections and edit the diaries of her late husband, a military man. Felipe moves to the widow's mansion to live there for a while and he meets a caretaker named Aura. Passions arise between the two as Felipe progresses in his work, and mysterious events (noises, appearances) make Felipe think that there's a strong bond between Aura and the widow.
There is one, indeed. Aura is actually an image created by the widow to seduce Felipe, so in this way her late husband will come back to life in the body of the young man.
