This dark comedy directed by Fernando Fernan Gomez concerns a trio of secluded, childish siblings with a very bizarre lifestyle. Ignacia (Tota Alba) is a vicious harridan who mercilessly berates her younger sister Paquita (Rafaela Aparicio), eventually beating her severely. Outraged brother Venancio (cult director Jesus Franco) kills Ignacia with a bottle, burying her in the cellar with the help of her ex-lover Fernando (Carlos Larranaga). The second half of the film is a clever, albeit peculiar farce, as Fernando impersonates Ignacia to prevent detection of the crime. Lina Canalejas and Sara Lezana co-star.
