Description

Actress, former porn star, and drug addict Marina (Victoria Abril) has just finished shooting a horror film. Psychopath Ricki (Antonio Banderas), who once slept with Marina and has been released from a mental institution, plans to track her down, hold her hostage, and make her fall in love with him. From initially resisting captivity to helping her captor tie her up, Marina experiences a complete turnaround in this comedic, erotic, and disturbing case study in Stockholm syndrome.
