Diego and Blanca have menial jobs, and life at home consists of eating, watching television, or having sex in various parts of the house. While the sex is plentiful, it seems to hold the same allure as TV. When Diego's daughter from a previous marriage shows up in need of his help, Blanca's jealous streak erupts. Director Amat Escalante's minimalist first feature explores an arid relationship and its consequences. His low-key approach builds to a horrific climax that takes us by surprise
