Julia is saying goodbye to the last visitors who have come to the house after the sudden death of her husband. When it seems that finally has a moment of intimacy, Susan knocks on the door. Despite Julia’s refusal to let her pass, Susana rebukes her, arguing that she has the right to say goodbye to her husband.
The two most important women in the life of the deceased are seen together in the same room. They observe and comment without giving credit, the rictus that is drawn on the dead man’s face, a stupid and stubborn smile. The moments of tension are diluted between drinks and confidences, giving rise to the two women being comfortable with each other, friends.
Too many emotions, too much alcohol, too much hate and too much love end up sleeping in the same bed.
