Overview

Carmen Elias and Susi Sanchez star in director Juan Carlos Claver's drama exploring Spain's "social danger" laws through the story of two lesbian lovers whose relationship is marred by tragedy. As the film opens, middle-aged Elvira is saved from a suicide attempt and charged with the murder of her longtime lover Pilar. As Elvira's memories come flooding back, the viewer is transported the early 1970s, when young teachers Elvira and Pilar first fell in love. When Pilar's mother discovers that her daughter is involved in a lesbian relationship, she sends the frightened girl to an asylum where electroshock therapy is employed to "cure" her perversion. Though forced to endure year after tormenting year of psychological reconditioning, Pilar clings to her love of Elvira as her only true happiness. Years later, Pilar and Elvira are reunited. But Pilar is different now, and after years of abusive treatment by misguided doctors, her relationship with Elvira seems destined to end in tragedy.
