Mohamad Ali El Akili,
These three stories, which meet at a certain point, and whose protagonists unwittingly influence the lives of their families, comprise a surrealist reflection of the cruel realities of Peruvian everyday life. An old married couple launch into the risky business of building their own mausoleum. When they discover that their former housemaid has gone blind, they give her a pig, never dreaming what the tragic consequences will be. A popular radio announcer falls in love with a girl with suicidal tendencies. This film won Francisco J. Lombardi the nickname Bunuel's nephew and saw him labeled the heir to the tradition of black humor in the comedies of Berlanga and Ferreri.
