At Christmas, in the house of Doña Lucrecia de Haro, near El Prado, her guests self-isolate because of the cold in the capital. To spend Easter, each one of them will tell a story that will introduce us to the sentimental imaginary of the controversial golden age, from the most friendly and domestic side of everyday life.
