On the run after her lover ODs, cabaret singer and junkie Yolanda (Pascual) decides to hide out in a Madrid convent populated by a group of lesbian, drug-using nuns. Employing a level of anticlerical satire that takes it far beyond Bunuelian, Almodovar delivered his raucous and very funny fourth feature film, his first with a proper budget and producer.
