Description

Mother Becky (Marisa Paredes) and daughter Rebecca (Victoria Abril) meet again when Becky returns to Madrid after a decade-and-a-half spent in Mexico. Resentment boils to the surface Rebecca recalls a childhood spent with a largely absent mother, who was more concerned with her own career and multiple lovers. Now that they have reunited, Becky finds out that Rebecca is married to one of her old flames. A love triangle ensues and murder becomes inevitable in this Douglas Sirk-ian melodrama.
