After fighting on the Republican side during the Spanish Civil War, a man goes into exile in France. His wife stays with his children waiting for him in a Catalan town, and she goes to work in a factory to support her family. He writes numerous letters to her, but the years go by, and he does not return. A Greek choir recounts stories of the many Penelopes who did not succumb to the trap of the loom and wait impassively after the civil war.
