A young Jewish bride's life is put into turmoil when her husband is questioned, then arrested for possible anti-government activity.
This last foray into the big screen by Marisol met with unfair bad reviews. Many feel this was due to Marisol's (by now Pepa Flores) outspoken communist militancy and open rejection of her career past, both factors which she has since seemed to have reconciled.
Ironically the film also starts out with a heavy passion and then also wanders off failing to make its point. It is quiet and self-righteous in a Hasidim kind of way and you tend to wonder if Marisol knew this was her last case.
Watch for a young Antonio Banderas cast as the jail buddy.
