Plot & Details
This is a quirky drama/fantasy about a deeply twisted young woman, Azucena (Mercedes Ortega), and her progress from religious mania to a relationship with a peculiar young man who is as seriously warped by his own past as she is by hers. Azucena grew up watching her mother, a prostitute, having sex with her customers. Now grown, she finds the idea of sex intensely repulsive and is an extremely devout Catholic. After escaping a rape attempt by one of her few male friends, Cesar (Miguel Alonso), she has a vision of the Virgin, who tells her to go to a certain nightclub. There she meets Narciso (Gustavo Salmeron), a muscular, handsome transvestite. Narciso's parents, among other things, require him to wear women's underwear. Azucena and Narciso get along quite well.
