Synopsis: 

Set in a nearly abandoned Mexican village in which the local brothel is run by an elderly transvestite and his daughter, this outrageous melodrama from Arturo Ripstein functions both as a wild, grotesque entertainment and as a sly window into so many aspects of Mexican life, both then and now.
