Join us as we revisit a classic from the repertoire of master filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar. Halba Con Ella is an offbeat drama that explores the friendship of two men who come together while caring for two women in deep comas
 
Benigno is a male nurse whose apartment overlooks a dance studio; he often sits on his balcony and watches one of the students, Alicia. When Alicia is severely injured in an auto accident that leaves her in a coma, Benigno discovers she has been admitted to the hospital where he works, and he spends his days caring for a woman he now deeply loves but has barely met. He soon meets Marco, a journalist who blames himself for the injury to a well-known female bullfighter, Lydia. Alicia and Lydia are both housed in the same ward of the same hospital, and in time Benigno and Marco become close friends, bonding in their shared devotion to women who cannot return their affection. (Spain, 2002, 112 Mins., R, Spanish | Dir. Pedro Almodóvar)
