Mexican psychodrama portraying a woman's intense loneliness and her journey into a world of sexual experimentation. Freelance journalist Laura Lopez (Monica del Carmen) lives alone, leaving her tiny flat only to shop for groceries and to pick up random, faceless men for sex. Her repeated attempts at intimacy with these men come to nothing until she meets Artur (Gustavo Sanchez Parra), who at last gives her the attention she craves. But as time goes by Artur's sadistic tendencies come to the fore as Laura lays herself bare to the aggressive and demeaning sexual acts he performs. This controversial, sexually charged psychological thriller won the Camera d'Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
