Carmen (Maribel Verdú) lives on the outskirts of Madrid with her husband Carlos (Antonio de la Torre). She's an ordinary housewife who's devoted to her family and he's a construction worker and soccer fan who lives and breathes for Real Madrid. One day their routine lives change forever. At a wedding reception, Carmen’s cousin Pepe (José Mota), an amateur hypnotist, gives a demonstration. He asks for a volunteer from the audience and a skeptical Carlos agrees. The next morning Carlos starts behaving strangely - something went wrong and now he's possessed by a spirit. Together the cousins begin a surreal, comical investigation to bring him back, while Carmen starts to feel curiously attracted to her “new” husband.

“A technically impressive mix of the commercial and the personal.” – The Hollywood Reporter / Full Review

“A fast-paced comedy with lashes of gothic noir horror, which takes a swing at sexism by picturing a Spanish macho man who is possessed by an evil spirit.” –Variety / Full Review
