Fiery and luscious Senorita Silvia (Penelope Cruz, star of Vanilla Sky and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin) becomes pregnant to village Mummy’s-boy Jose, (Jordi Mulla) whose family owns the local underwear factory. Silvia’s father has left town and her mother Carmen (Anna Galiena) is forced to become the town prostitute.

Jose’s overbearing mother Conchita (Stefania Sandrelli) fears her son will marry the daughter of a scarlet woman and takes action… she hires sexy, young Raul, (Javier Bardem, star of Before Night Falls) who works in the ham-factory and enjoys nude bullfighting, to seduce Silvia.

That’s when the passion and fun really heats up. A sensuous comedy that uses food as a sexual metaphor where breasts taste of ham and where a duel to the death is with a side of bacon!
