A woman returns to her homeland, a Latin American country that has just returned to democratic rule. A friend suggests she recuperate from her journey at a local country club. Soon after arriving, she realizes the club overlooks the training grounds of soldiers plotting to bring back military rule. A comedy of manners in which the military jump in and out of the kingsize bed faster than you can say coup. This is Luisa Valenzuela at her best ? ironic, political commentary laced with sex and humour.
