Description: When his rambunctiously batty 97-year-old mother becomes too much for him to handle, aging bachelor Andres Abalos (Julio Jung) hires Estela, the 17-year-old niece of his servant Lourdes, to look after the old woman. Over time, the solitary, wealthy Andres becomes obsessed with Estela and watches as she embarks on a passionate affair with the destitute Mario. The passion of Estela and Mario's relationship stands in stark contrast to the powerlessness Andres feels in halting the dissolution of both his life and household, and he grows increasingly despondent.~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide
