On the day of both her birthday and wedding anniversary, Emma unexpectedly passes away without anything foreshadowing the fatal ending.

Andrés lives the loss of his young and loving wife.  In denial, he tries to convince his friend and doctor to heal her.  But the death is a fact. In desperation Andrés implores the return of his partner.  Emma resurrects but she has lost all the memories that tied her up to her love towards him.
