  • I want to be like her....

This much-lauded Spanish film examines issues of life and death. A woman decides to hide her murdered husband's body in a freezer at a restaurant. At the same time, she reopens the restaurant as the owner is away. Then her supposedly-dead mother arrives to visit her sister. Sister decides to hide not-actually-dead mom from her sister, but it's only a matter of time before they come face to face... In Spanish language with English subtitles.
