Movie Info

In Caro's third feature film, Elvira's husband goes out to buy a pack of cigarettes, and never comes back. The 40-year-old mother of two young children frantically hunts for clues. Erratically taking things into her own hands, Elvira turns into an amateur sleuth on a relentless and hysterical quest to discover what happened. As Elvira begins to unravel secrets about the husband she thought she knew, her own repressed identity begins to unravel before her. Emmy nominated actress Cecilia Suárez shines in the title role of this delightfully rare, physical and emotional comedy. She's joined by a cast of leading popular and established actors including Luis Gerardo Méndez, co-star of the record-breaking Nosotros los Nobles and last year's Mexican Academy Award entry Cantinflas; accomplished Spanish actor Carlos Bardem (Days of Grace and Escobar: Paradise Lost); and Colombian actress Angie Cepeda, who stars in the forthcoming Wild Horses directed by Robert Duvall.
