Alfredo (Camara) is a struggling encyclopedia salesman in Spain during the waning days of Franco's puritanical regime.

They turn out to be naturals, with Alfredo directing and Carmen starring. Then Alfredo gets ambitious and decides he wants to be the new Ingmar Bergman, writing a script (the movie's title) and persuading a disillusioned Carmen to go along with his idea.
