Green tap water becomes an ill omen when a lavish upper-class wedding goes awry in an unexpected uprising of class warfare that gives way to a violent coup d'état. As seen through the eyes of the sympathetic young bride and the servants who work for, and against, her wealthy family, the film breathlessly traces the collapse of one political system as a more harrowing replacement springs up in its wake. This riveting, stylistically astonishing and intellectually challenging dystopia won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

"Inspired by Mexico's social and economic reality, Franco's absolutely fictional film mirrors the processes that keep on repeating throughout history in various parts of the world, and sows seeds of doubt whether significant change in the fight against inequality is even possible. Can the levers of power be replaced? The film may leave audiences divided, prompting fervent but fruitful discussion. It acts as a warning from the director that 'if inequality is not addressed by civic means, and if all dissenting voices are silenced, chaos ensues.'" (Aistė Račaitytė)
