The Ocean follows the lives of three women through the growing modernization and political turmoil of Chile during the latter half of the 20th century,
These three women – Maria Soledad, Consuelo and Pilar – each live in different eras, yet are all confronted with changed personal and public histories that have a profound effect on their lives. Maria Soledad struggles with the restrictions placed on her because she is a woman; Consuelo fails to understand the dire and dangerous political climate she is immersed within; and Pilar is trapped in a body that she cannot fully control. The only one constant in their lives is the enduring presence of the ocean.
