Ricky is released from a mental hospital, and knows exactly what he wants to do. He hunts down Marina, a porn film star he once had sex with, and tries to convince her to be his wife. She is a bit reluctant, so he ties her up. Will this approach endear him to her?

The sex scene between Antonio Banderas
and Victoria Abril

later remarked that he thought it was one of the best sex scenes he had ever witnessed. See more
