Mallorca, 1865. Funerals are celebrated by the lords of Bearn, whose motto has always been “to die rather than to mix my blood.” The chaplain Juan Mayol, an orphan who does not know his origin, decides to reconstruct the history of the family: Don Antonio’s trip to Paris, his return to Bearn, the visit to the Pope and his passion for his niece Doña Xima.
