It’s 1950s Spain – a classic era of dread and repression.   Spinster, seamstress and shut-in Montse (Macarena Gomez) toils away on dresses for wealthy clients in the confines of her small apartment, and keeps a suspicious eye on her pretty (and much more balanced) younger sister.   When handsome Carlos (Hugo Silva), an upstairs neighbor, falls and breaks his leg outside Montse’s door, the horrified/delighted Montse takes him for “healing”…but never calls a doctor. When Carlos’ distraught fiance (Carolina Bang) shows up looking for her vanished lover, Montse has to get creative about hiding her delicious new prey.
