Pía (Paz Bascuñán) is on the verge of a nervous breakdown: Her boss humiliates her, her husband ignores her, her stepson does not respect her, and her best friend does not listen to her. Pía has a strong chest pain and after trying everything to heal she decides to undergo an acupuncture treatment. The Chinese doctor discovers that Pía's pain is caused by repressed feelings and with an ancient technique he takes out the filter. From now on, Pía will not filter and realize that the only way to heal is to say everything she thinks... which will not bring good results.

User Reviews

Great movie for a day in!

I found this movie by chance and was really glad I did, as it was surprisingly well made. If you don't like subtitles you should tough it out for this one. Great performance in the lead role by Paz Bascuñán, who has to run through the full gamut of emotions throughout the film. Although a little formulaic at times, this title makes up for it with great character development and a well thought out and realistic story.The beginning of the movie will especially ring true to anyone who has ever just had one of those nothing-is- going-right days. Although I like foreign films in general, I was never interested in Latin-American cinema until I watched this movie. I believe it's a pretty find in the way that it has something for everyone. This film is defiantly worth a watch on a chilled out day.
