We are in 1885. In a ghostly train, the Oviedo Express, the actors that represent the theatrical adaptation of Clarín's 'The Regent' are traveling. The arrival of the comedians to the Asturian capital will alter the daily life of the city. The mayor's wife will fall into the arms of the main actor, and the passions and delusions will surface with all its consequences. A depressed actor, a furious actress, a petulant director, a local journalist, a spirited mother, and an angel roaming the city unleash fun and dramatic events until the abrupt and unexpected fall of the curtain.
