She produces and stars in a film meant to propel her into the international festival scene, but ends up getting severely injured. She recuperates in the care of her useless husband and a weirdly antisocial nurse. This intricately structured tale (by the director of Heneral Luna ) blurs the boundaries between dream and reality, using genre elements to bring to life the monstrous nature of people in an image-obsessed society.
