Mexican auteur Arturo Ripstein's neorealist drama follows unambitious waiter "Nacho" (Luis Felipe Tovar), who spends his days toiling in a 1940s Vera Cruz café and his nights pleasuring himself while fantasizing about killing Spain's General Franco. Enter Lola (Ariadna Gil), a licentious, opium-addled, political extremist, and soon the head-over-heels Nacho finds himself in a sadomasochistic tryst with the hooker in this daring allegorical tale.
