Overview
Internationally acclaimed writer director Pedro Almodóvar delivers his finest film yet, a poignant masterpiece of unconditional love, survival and redemption.

Manuela (Cecilia Roth) is the perfect mother. A hard-working nurse, she's built a comfortable life for herself and her teenage son, an aspiring writer. But when tragedy strikes and her beloved only child is killed in a car accident, her world crumbles. The heartbroken woman learns her son's final wish was to know of his father — the man she abandoned when she was pregnant 18 years earlier.

Returning to Barcelona in search of him, Manuela overcomes her grief and becomes a caregiver to a colorful extended family: a pregnant nun (Penélope Cruz), a transvestite prostitute (Antonia San Juan), and two troubled actresses (Marisa Paredes and Candela Peña). With riveting performances, unforgettable characters and creative plot twists; this touching screwball melodrama is "An absolute stunner. A funny, touching and vital film marks a career peak for Almodovar!" – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
