A single ricochet gunshot propels the plot and dramatically alters the lives of the quintet. The result is a vengeful, five-way battle of wits.

Very much an Almodovar picture with most of the anticipated outrageous occurrences intact.

This is the first Almodovar movie that could be called boring.
