Pilars father is dead a fact that threatens her near pathological dependence on him. Within a few short hours her life founders, and she withdraws into her own inner world. This is a powerful debut from a highly talented director who took inspiration from innovative trends in the Mexican film industry but still managed to find her own style.
Lucia Carreras directorial debut is unusual for the fact that she focuses on ideas and imagination dealing with human physicality. It is precisely this kind of intimate drama that carries within it the roots of magical realism, best known from Latin American literature.
