The plot takes place in small Spanish town where young Jose Luis (played by Jordi Mola) works in the underwear factory owned by his parents. His 18-year girlfriend Sylvia (played by Penelope Cruz), who works in the factory, is pregnant so Jose Luis decides to propose her. Jose Luis' mother Conchita (played by Stefania Sandrelli) sees this as unacceptable, since Sylvia's mother Carmen (played by Anna Galiena) happens to be notorious local prostitute. In order to break the engagement Conchita hires services of local stud and underwear model Raul (played by Javier Bardem) who is supposed to seduce Sylvia. However, her scheme doesn't go as planned - Conchita falls in love with Raul, Jose Luis finds solace in Carmen, while Jose Luis' father begins making moves on his son's fiancee.

This film is the first part of a trilogy filmed by spanish director Bigas Luna between 1992 and 1994, titled “The Iberian Passion Trilogy”.
