Pregnant actress Pepa (Maura) is distraught by a break-up with her actor boyfriend Iván (Guillén), and prepares a gazpacho laced with sleeping pills. She is, however, saved from suicide by her best friend Candela (Barranco), a fugitive from justice. Garnering Almodóvar his first Oscar®-nomination, Women is stylish, hilarious and consistently ingenious cinema.
