Rosa (Angela Molina) has one burning desire: to escape the grinding poverty in which she was born. To this end, Rosa takes a job at a fancy eatery in Madrid. Slowly and methodically, she becomes the city's Number One restaurateur. Not that she hasn't had a little "extra help" along the way: in fact, one could almost refer to her rise to the top as magical. Margarita Lozano co-stars as Rosa's ancient grandmother, who passes on certain peculiar powers to the ambitious heroine. Based on the "feminist fable" by Manuel Guitterez Aragon Half of Heaven was originally released in Spain as La Mitad del Cielo.
