Basque Country, 1609. Ana, Katalin and their friends are suddenly arrested and accused of a crime they know nothing about—witchcraft. Judge Pierre de Rosteguy de Lancre, who has been appointed by the King himself to «purify» the region, is convinced that the girls are guilty. He wants them to confess all they know about the «Sabbath», a diabolical ceremony in which Lucifer, it is said, has intercourse with his female servants. No matter what they say, the girls are called witches. As the last resort, they decide to become what they say they are.

Nora is 30 years old. She lives with her Argentinean grandfather and usually babysits her friend Mary’s children. She writes the horoscope for the village’s magazine, though she dreams of becoming a travel writer one day. When her grandfather dies, he leaves her an old Dyane 6 van. Even if she is a terrible driver, Nora sets on a road trip along the Basque coast to take her grandpa’s ashes next to her grandma’s. Along the way, Nora will soon find out that she is not a natural-born traveler and that her old dream has nothing to with her, really. It was just an excuse for her to take the chance and be free, grow up, heal her wounds, and, for the first time in her life, let herself be happy.
