"Los cuadernos de don Rigoberto" centers around Rigoberto, an insurance executive during the day and a pornographer at night. He misses his estranged second wife, Lucrecia, whom he separated from after she had a sexual encounter with his son Alfonso. To compensate for her absence, Rigoberto fills his notebooks with memories, fantasies and unsent letters. Author Mario Vargas Llosa keeps readers guessing which episodes are real and which are from Rigoberto's imagination.
