Emma is an attractive young woman, but she is not without her troubles – she is also blind. Having abandoned the thought of true love, she is still obsessed with the thought of conceiving a baby. To seek comfort, Emma joins a therapy group consisting of various disadvantaged individuals. However, rather than just solidarity and solace, Emma’s group sessions results in her starting a relationship with the group’s psychologist, German. Taking advantage of her blindness, not only does German withhold the fact that he is married but he also videotapes them having sex. Little does he know that Emma, concerned only with getting pregnant, is using him too.

Roberto Pérez-Toledo’s debut feature is an intriguing, character-driven mix between drama and comedy. Most of the film’s darkness as well as humor are embedded in the confessional therapy sessions and its characters’ widely disparate views of reality. Combining cinéma vérité style shots with an episodic structure, order mixes with chaos as the story unfolds. The sharp editing and the restrained piano score all coalesce in lending the film a dramatic intensity.
