The actors Lola Herrera and Daniel Dicenta, separated for the last 14 years, are reunited in a dressing room with the aim of recalling the ups and downs of their shared lovelife. The result is very revealing: the actress confesses her expectations and subsequent disappointment on their wedding night; the actor reveals to his ex-wife his jealousy and the social pressure which he suffered; both of them accept the terrible lack of communication, the excessive emotional restraint and immaturity during their marriage. In Función de noche the doubts and frustrations caused by a specific love education and the desire to get over the adjectives which had been assigned to women during the Franco years take shape around Lola Herrera in a direct style, away from any moralizing tone.
