Summertime in a small village in southeastern Spain. A storm threatens to cause the river crossing it to overflow again. Throughout the village, an old popular belief is repeated like a litany, claiming that some women are predestined to disappear with each new flood, because they were born with «the water inside».
Local teenagers try to survive the weariness of a summer in the village, smoking cigarettes, dancing and drinking. In this electric atmosphere that precedes the storm, Ana, who dreams of fleeing this village that stinks of death, and José will live a story of summer love.
