Prolific director Jesus Franco's first feature film is an episodic comedy-fantasy concerning a pair of girls on vacation from the University of Madrid. Isana Medel and Mari Tere Penella star as Maria and Pili, who buy an old car and drive off into the countryside, imagining many fantastic adventures to enhance their relatively uneventful journey. Several bizarre fantasies follow, involving gangsters, singers, and even a mysterious vampiric figure whose exploits include Arabian and jungle adventures, Indian encounters, and a stint as Jack the Ripper. Slapstick Spanish comedian Antonio Ozores appears in several roles, and Franco regulars Maria Luisa Ponte, Pablo Sanz, Antonio J. Escribano, and Rufino Ingles also appear.
