In a village in southern Spain lives Frasquita Carrasco, a seamstress who has the reputation of magician or witch, because it seems to give life into the garments she sews. One day, her husband plays in a bid Frasquita and loses. That forces her to commit adultery and leave town with their children and flee through Andalusia. This region, in the late nineteenth century, was steeped with peasant revolts where she will be tragically involved. Their journey takes them to Africa, where Frasquita gives birth to her last child and will be closing her cycle of life.
