Carlos has two passions in life: his work as the most prestigious tailor in Granada, and his hobby killing, cooking, and eating beautiful women. He performs both with meticulous precision, and without guilt or remorse. But when Nina, a beautiful and innocent young immigrant, comes looking for her missing twin sister, she awakens in Carlos a kind of love he’d long since written off. Can this demon's love story survive on a foundation of secrets and deception? Winner of the Goya Award for Best Cinematography.
