Through My Window summary and ending explained

Netflix’s Through My Window follows Raquel who seems to be an innocent, helpless girl but is obsessed with her next door neighbour Ares and wants to make him fall in love with her. But to what extend will she go to achieve her goal?

Summary

Raquel starts narrating the story of her life. In a classroom we see her refusing to read her assignment as even though she knows how to write a story, she isn’t brave enough to tell it. She then says that her story doesn’t start in this classroom, it actually starts in her house.

Her house as she describes is a humble abode that, through ups and downs, ended up surrounded by an empire called the Hidalgo mansion. The Hidalgos are her next door neighbors but their lifestyle is completely different from hers. The Hidalgos own Alpha 3, one of the most influential companies in the country, whose headquarters is the most spectacular building in Barcelona.

Alpha 3 refers to the three heirs to the empire, the Hidalgo brothers, Artemis, Ares and Apolo. Raquel has an unhealthy obsession with Ares but has never said a word to him. She knows everything he does and likes to collect information about him.

Apolo thanks Raquel for letting them use her Wi-Fi as theirs is broken. She is confused and finds out that Ares has hacked into her computer and cracked the Wi-Fi password. The next day Raquel follows Ares into a secluded wooded area, where she confronts him about hacking into her computer. In response, he writes the password on her hand and asks her why it is a code that says, ‘Ares, Greek God’. They exchange words which leads to Raquel admitting that she likes him and wants him to fall for her.

At night she unplugs the Wi-Fi to assert that its her, who is in control of it. But Ares climbs up her window into her room and plugs it back in. They share a steamy moment that leaves Raquel wanting for more. The next day Ares invites her to a party where she seduces him but doesn’t let him get what he wants and exclaims that karma is a bitch.

Later, she buys a drink for Apolo who gets too drunk and doesn’t want to go back to his place. She takes him to her place with the help of her friend, Daniela. On the way to her place, Apolo accidendally breaks her phone. Ares again climbs up her window and says that until their father goes to work, they can’t go back home. Ares opens up to her about his grandfather’s death and how he too has allergies just like him.

Ares gifts Raquel a new phone but she isn’t very pleased with this gesture. So she goes to his house to return the phone but things get too steamy and they end up having sex. But after this, Ares acts indifferent which makes Raquel really angry and she storms off.

She realizes that she has left her locket at his place so she goes back to get it. She ends up staying the night but in the morning he again dismisses her and makes her leave. Raquel’s friends, Daniela and Yoshi bring her to a party to help her take her mind off of Ares where she gets drunk.

Ares sees her in the street in a vulnerable position and takes her to her house. Ares admits that he has been pushing her away as she makes him feel things and how his father has already set a path for him which he has follow. A path that doesn’t involve falling for any girl. Ares tells Raquel that he genuinely does care about her and asks her to give him another chance.

Everything seems to be going well this time. But that is until Ares takes Raquel to a family party to prove a point to his father. There, Raquel feels humiliated when she sees her mother working as a waiter.

Through My Window ending explained in detail

The Prom

Raquel has a heartfelt conversation with her mother where she tells her not to follow in the footsteps of her father. Her father was a great writer but he never had the courage to publish his novel. She encourages her to cut all the drama and just tell Ares how she really feels about him.

Raquel goes to Ares’s place to tell him just that but isn’t allowed into the house as everyone in his family feels that she is a distraction that will stop him from attaining his goals.

Ares disobeys everyone and runs to the prom where he is shunned by Yoshi for breaking Raquel’s heart so many times.

Yoshi

Yoshi always had feelings for Raquel and wanted to be more than just her friend. He had resented Raquel and Ares’s relationship from the very beginning.

Yoshi is furious and doesn’t let Ares speak to Raquel. They exchange words that lead to a fight where Yoshi pushes Ares into an empty pool. Soon the pool starts filling up with water.

Yoshi tells Raquel what happened at the pool and she rushes to save him as she remembers that he is allergic to chlorine. It is said that Ares suffered from a severe anaphylactic attack.

Bravery

Raquel visits him at the hospital and stays by his side the whole time until he completely recovers. After the scare, Ares’s family lets him do what he wants. So, he decided to study medicine in Stockholm.

On the airport, Ares confesses that he had purposefully broken their Wi-Fi so that he could talk to her.

Raquel is finally brave enough to tell her story, so four months later she publishes her book called ‘Through My Window’.

The end credits roll as we see Ares climb up her window to surprise her.
