In the early morning hours, two elderly whores go back to their hovels. They are not tired from working. They are tired of not doing do. One has problems at home with her teenage daughter and her cross dressing husband. The other, with her loneliness. But that night, they have a date to celebrate the victory in the ring of two wrestlers, twin midgets wearing masks. At the hourly hotel, in order to rob the tiny men of their earnings, they drug them with eye drops. But the dose proves fatal. They murder them unintentionally. Scared and confused, they decide to hide from the police and run away together to live, as they always have, on Bleak Street.
A real nightmare that has as scenery the labyrinths Alleys of Mexico City. Arturo Ripstein in an elegant Black and white crumbles the sordid story of two fighters dwarfs and Two prostitutes on a trip without return. Overwhelming, wet atmosphere, Smelling of unsuccessful characters caught up in their own hobbies and Obsessions. One of the best Mexican directors is back!!
