Pedro Almodóvar’s latest is many things at once: a thriller about parentage and a meditation on motherhood.

Two women, Janis and Ana, meet in a hospital where they are about to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, has no regrets and is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared and repentant. Janis tries to encourage her as they move like sleepwalkers through the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between them, which by chance will develop and complicate, changing their lives in a decisive way.


The film will be introduced by Dr Paul Sutton, who will stay for the end of the film for a post-screening discussion in the auditorium.
