A queen who is somewhat of a sorceress and her two daughters travel in the Spanish Armada, obliged to Phillip II to enter into marriages of convenience with English noblemen, once England has been successfully invaded. However, Queen Esmeralda hates men, because they have always shackled her life and removed her freedoms, so she is not willing to allow her daughters to suffer the same fate as she did.
Inspired by Shakespeare’s comedies, La Ternura, a comedy of woodcutters and princesses, seeks to convey the impossibility of protecting us from the damage caused by love, because if we want to love we must risk suffering. Alfredo Sanzol directs this romantic comedy featuring desert islands, monumental shipwrecks, fragile kinds, day-dreaming queens, fearful woodcutters and tempestuous shepherdesses.
