Gritty and realistic, this Spanish crime drama chronicles the events that led to the murder of a young Barcelona beauty. Before her brutal death, Susanna had been engaged to marry Moroccan immigrant Said. Before that, the confused recovering drug-addict had been involved with wine salesman Alex, an arrangement set up by her boss to repay a debt to him. After one night with Susanna, Alex falls passionately in love. But trouble comes when Alex gets caught embezzling, loses his job and gets a new job in a bar owned by his friends, most of whom are small-time hoods. It is about this time that Susanna agrees to marry Said and starts immersing herself in his culture. When Alex finds out, he becomes insanely jealous and asks his friend Suso to arrange for the murder of Said. But when things don't go exactly as planned, tragedy ensues. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
