Description When her seventeen year-old son dies, Manuela leaves her job and takes to the road to search for her son's father. In Barcelona, she becomes involved with three women in crisis: a young nun, a famous actress and a drag queen. Yet, will taking care of these women help her overcome her guilt and grief for a lost child? For all mothers, everywhere. With its nods to Tennessee Williams and All About Eve, Almodóvar's great exploration of a mother's strength and life's frailty has been turned into a superb play.
