Cast & Credits

Synopsis

Thriller. Cesar is a rich yuppie who makes it a point of honor to sleep with women only once before abandoning them. After a making out with Nuria, he throws a party, during which he meets Sofia. Clearly disturbed, Nuria offers Cesar a lift home, and drives off the road, presumably killing herself and disfiguring Cesar. During flash-back and dream sequences, Cesar is in jail, walking around Madrid, and coming to terms with his vanity and his relationships with Nuria and Sofia.
