In the head of Juan, an unemployed writer, it seemed like a good idea: to work as a guard at the Hotel Balneario de Ariño, the same old mining area where he is setting his novel, his dreamed historical best seller with which he finally makes his debut. But suddenly the world stops, the pandemic appears, the whole of Spain goes into quarantine and what was going to be a simple fifteen-day job becomes a lockdown of paranormal overtones in the new normal. Juan, stuck and unhinged, lives quarantine with calls from his mother and video calls from his dominant girlfriend, whom he is about to marry. Also those of his roommate expert in conspiracies and those of Juan Manuel de Prada himself, his tutor in a creative writing course. He is only related to Evaristo, the boldest mechanic and pot-maker in Aragon; with Antonio, the strong arm of the Law, and with the elusive and sexy Alicia, in charge of bringing him the groceries from the supermarket.
