Dr. Jano is speaking at a medical convention at an Argentinean hotel well past its prime. He is attracted to Helena, single mother and co-owner of the hotel. Amalia, Helena's teenage daughter, is starting to explore both her faith and her sexuality, spending much of her time with her best friend Josephina. In their imaginations, the girls tend to conflate the erotic, the religious, and the lurid. Then Dr. Jano makes an anonymous sexual advance towards Amalia in public, and sets in motion a chain of events that will have serious consequences for all of them

To avoid the hot and humid weather, they spend their summers at a country estate. Mecha's cousin, Tali, lives in a nearby city, has a crew of small, noisy children she is trying to deal with.

Mecha, her husband Gregorio and their friends are spending another stifling day drinking and lounging around the filthy swimming pool of their crumbling summer estate when Mecha stumbles and is badly cut on her broken wine glass.

The debut feature of Argentinian filmmaker Lucrecia Martel is a harsh portrait of middle-class life in a small provincial town in northern Argentina. The film portrays the creepily dysfunctional families of two sisters, Tali (Mercedes Moran) and Mecha (Graciela Borges), as they approach the sticky end of a long, hot summer. Against the unspoken backdrop of a country ravaged by political, social and financial turpitude, the characters anaesthetise themselves with sex, alcohol and thoughtless, self-indulgent behaviour
