After a five-year-long absence, Larsen gets back for a day in Santa Maria and decides to climb up the river to the Puerto Astillero quay. This is how he is suddenly appointed to the meaningless position of General Director of Jeremías Petrus & Cía , a deserted shipyard, managed from a distance by its owner Jeremías Petrus . Larsen takes up his new post with the enthusiasm of someone condemned to death. As all the rest of the workers, he routinely performs his obligations without paying any special attention up to the moment when he is shaken by the self-induced deceit that the fame of Jeremías Petrus could be revived. The shipyard is an ironic story about Larcen's tortuous attempts to regain the public respect, he had lost five years earlier, keeping up unclear relations with a brothel in Santa Maria.
