Carmen, a devout Catholic woman from Malaga is on the cusp of changing history to become the leader of her local religious guild. However, her dream is all but crushed when her biggest rival is chosen: the ridiculous, arrogant Ignacio, who is also determined to prevent her from holding the post. When a comic twist of fate leaves Ignacio unconscious in Carmen’s home, she must make all attempts to keep him hidden while she receives a series of unexpected visitors. Yet, what at first seems like a terrible predicament may, in fact, be Carmen’s only chance to snatch back her dream.
Gloria Muñoz’s wonderful performance brings humour, humanity and a wicked edge to the role that entertains to the very end. (Spanish with English subtitles)
