Synopsis
José Pablo promised his extravagant grandmother, Mamacita, to make a film about her life, without knowing that this would lead to revelation of secrets, lies and deceptions affecting 5 generations of a highsociety Mexican family.

Mamacita is an extravagant Mexican beauty queen living in her own kingdom in company of her loyal servants: gardener, chauffeur, chef, housekeeper and nurses. The 95-year-old lady has turned her house into a castle, hiding the open wounds of a prominent Mexican upper class family behind its stonewalls. When José Pablo went abroad to study film, Mamacita made him promise to return to Mexico one day to make a film about her life. He conquers his granny’s empire like a Trojan horse, discovering the haunted spirits of his own past and the lack of love that his entire clan has suffered from for generations.
