Cast: Victoria Abril, Marisa Paredes, Miguel Bosé After a long absence, an aging pop star returns to her native Madrid to find drag queens reenacting her past, and her estranged daughter married to one of her ex-lovers. But their long-awaited family reunion is derailed by a murder that provokes a flurry of confessions. High Heels pays tribute to classic mother-daughter melodramas like Imitation of Life, Mildred Pierce, and Stella Dallas, while retaining Almodóvar’s outlandish modern bite.
