Synopsis

"In this often comic masterpiece of acting, two of Argentina’s most respected actors play “Susana” and “Marcos,” a sister and brother no longer even middle-aged but still locked in emotional combat dating back to their childhood. With their mother dead, Marcos is bundled off to a backwater town in Uruguay, while Susana proceeds to drain the estate of its last peso to pay off her debts which have sustained an arrogant lifestyle. When she discovers that Marcos is actually enjoying his time in Uruguay – even going so far as to fall in love – Susana sets out to destroy that dream, too. She is such a powerhouse of arrogance, egotism, and selfishness that one can’t help but laugh even when she is at her evilest."
