Cuatro hombres recalan en la pension Miramar desterrados por una realidad social que los ha convertido en exiliados en su propio pais. La rivalidad por conseguir los favores de Zohra Salama, una joven entre candida y sugerente, crea una atmosfera de tension enfermiza, donde la fustracion y el sentimiento de fracaso afloran hasta desnudar el interior herido de cada uno.
