Love, sex and death: all experienced for the first time.

With the Spanish 70’s as a backdrop, María, Carlota and Paloma live through the joys and misfortunes of reaching adulthood. After their father’s death, stranded in an old manor house with a childish, day-dreamer of a mother, they will begin their adult lives ill-equipped. Each in turn tells the story in her own words. Only the reader, from his privileged perspective will be able to gather all the pieces of the family story into a complete mosaic.

El tiempo de las mujeres is also a story about shared intimacy and family secrets and how they unavoidably clash.
