synopsis

The 40's, Mexico. Ignacio Jurado, "El Mikado" is a waiter, rather reserved and lonely. His days go by among the Ofelia Café and his collection of pornographic photographs. Nevertheless, everything changes when Lola (Ariadna Gil), a Spanish prostitute of a certain self-destructive and unpredictable tenderness, bursts in his life. A sadomasochistic relation will arise between them. El Mikado will do whatever in order to gain Lola's love? Whatever, even killing Franco.
