A rich old man suffers from amnesia and paralysis caused by an auto accident. Confined to a wheelchair, he is forced by his seemingly respectable family to relive painful incidents from the past. Gradually we learn that his greedy relatives are staging these grotesque dramas in a heartless attempt to jolt him into remembering the number of his Swiss bank account. A complex, darkly humorous, surrealistic portrait of the frustration caused by helplessness, it also touches on the subjects of selfishness, corruption, and the stifling repression of Spanish fascism.
