The film tells of two very different individuals who share a prison cell in South American : Valentin Arregui, who is imprisoned (and has been tortured) due to his activities on behalf of a leftist revolutionary group, and Luis Molina, a transgender woman in prison for "corrupting the youth".&amp;amp;nbsp; To pass the time Molina recalls the plots of her favorite B-movies. As the story progresses the audience learns that the interwoven stories resonate much more deeply than the simple escapism Valentin original dismisses them as. Touching on issues of identity, political theory and love. Not to mention projecting Molina's guilt over making a deal with the secret police to extract information from her sick cellmate.
The main film is shot by Ingmar Bergman. Cause nobody shots chamber dramas better.
Peter Sellers plays Molina.

Isabelle Adjani: As the b-movie starlet Molina loves. &nbsp;Adjani will be the lead in all sequences, Valentin's girlfriend in flashbacks, AND, yes, the Spider Woman.
