A teacher with literary aspirations, bored with his native Spain, travels to Morocco. He arrives in the ancient city of Fez, where he learns to appreciate the depth and richness of the local Arab culture. Still yearning to be away from the noise and bustle of city life, however, he moves to a house on the lower slopes of the Atlas mountains, where he hopes to find the space and tranquility that have so long eluded him.
