Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this complex drama, the turbulent lives of ordinary women and men in Mexico are portrayed. One story focuses on the relationship between a troubled youth and his mother, which improves only when he is arrested for manslaughter. In another, the wife of a macho nut who demands that she produce a child as a demonstration of his manhood commits adultery in order to accomplish this objective. Juana's story is only one among many in this somewhat confusing film.
