Selling encyclopedias is a tough gig for Alfredo. But there may be light at the end of the tunnel when he and his wife, Carmen, are approached by his publisher to star in a series of erotic films (thinly veiled as instructional videos about reproduction). The films are a hit in Scandinavia, and Carmen becomes a porn star. But now, she wants out … and wants to have a baby with Alfredo! Stars Javier Camara and Candela Peña. Pablo Berger directs.
