The 32nd Tokyo International Film Festival: Asian Future Competition
As the old saying goes, a child is a gift from Heaven. But for Carmen, a child is a curse, a creature only out for revenge. A woman’s life is forever changed when she becomes a mom. Kiss goodbye to the thin waist, magnificent breasts and the late night wining and dining. Quality life is tragically dragged down because of the midnight feeding and frequency of poop and pee.
For years, Carmen had had no intention of having children and had enjoyed her quiet married life with her husband. But when she becomes pregnant by accident, her job transfer to the U.S. is postponed indefinitely and she must give up her beloved smokes and booze. To top it off, when her mother-in-law moves in under the pretense of looking after her, her life goes awry along with her hormones.
