Synopsis / Plot
Emilia a housewife overwhelmed by the mediocrity of her life, her failure of a husband and dissatisfi ed and exhausted by motherhood, feels that life is passing her by. One day, the same awful day that her faraway lover leaves her, a stop is put on the credit card she has been playing cat and mouse with for months. In her empty soulless apartment, Emilia decides to take the decision she has long contemplated, suicide.
Curiously enough, her death brings her two-timed husband and elusive lover together. Adaptation of Flaubert's Madame Bovary. (FILMAFFINITY)
