Miguel, a young psychiatrist working in Madrid, learns that his wife has just dumped him for no one else than his own father while he's expecting his mother-in-law's visit, who's come to the city on a medical revision, and doesn't know anything about her daughter's affair; to make things worse, one of Miguel's deranged patients has just stolen his wallet. Going to his patient's home to retrieve his wallet he'll meet instead his spontaneous and outspoken hairdresser sister Jasmina, who's bound to change Miguel's ordered, upper-middle-class world for good. Written by
A psychiatrist abandoned by his wife is left to look after his mother-in-law who is undergoing an operation; in the meantime one of his patients' sister pays him back the money her drug-addict brother stole from him. This is a comedy full of tenderness, with a witty, kind of surrealistic humour, and with a brilliant interpretation of all actors. The gallery of all insane or mentally disturbed characters adds more spice to the film, making the psychiatrist wonder if at the end he's not becoming like them.
