Parallel Mothers

“…vintage Almodóvar: a skein of reversals, revelations, surprises and coincidences unraveled with style, wit and feeling.” — New York Times

Janis and Ana’s stories coincide in a hospital room where each woman is going to give birth. Both are single, both became pregnant by accident. Middle-aged Janis is exultant. Adolescent Ana is scared, repentant and traumatized. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which develops, complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way.
