After all, the story about an unhappy housewife awakens all kinds of intense emotions: despair, laughter, sadness, strangeness. Married to a rude and unfaithful taxi driver, she is forced to work incessantly to support the family, which is still composed of a drug-trafficking son, an exploitative mother-in-law and another teenager, whom she decides to sell to her dentist. From there, we follow a series of strange characters that make sense only in an Almodóvar movie. To travel in the madness of the story and the unexpected obscurantism of the plot.
