Middle-aged Lucia (Roth) is the unreliable narrator of this Mexican fable. Lucia's husband, Ramon (Moreno), disppears in the Mexico City airport. Since their marriage was unhappy, maybe he decided to abandon her, or maybe Ramon was kidnapped. Since the police are no help, Lucia turns to two neighbors for assistance--Felix (Alvarez-Novoa), an elderly Spanish Civil War veteran, and young and handsome Adrian (Becker). There's a botched ransom drop and Ramon's exposure as an embezzler and Lucia's tryst with Adrian and many, many red herrings. Maybe Lucia is just spinning one big tale (she turns out to be a writer). And maybe it just doesn't matter. Adapted from the novel "La Hija del Canibal" by Rosa Montero. Spanish with subtitles.
