The story opens with the discovery of a body in the Olba marshes. Esteban, the protagonist, is forced to close the carpentry workshop he owns, leaving his employees jobless. While he cares for his father, who has entered the terminal stage of his illness, Esteban investigates the reasons behind this wreckage, for which he assumes responsibility in his double role of victim and persecutor. It is among these remains that we find the values which have governed a society, a world and an age. Welfare and its indivisible opposite, greed and fake pretences, turned into materials of demolition. The mirror into which Esteban stares, a man without attributes in his own way, reflects back to him an image made of broken dreams and lost hopes. Nothing has freed itself from voracity. Love, family, friendship and social codes have also formed part of the menu in this feast for only a few.
