desired! – film lust & queer

Carmeta, Mari and Pilar are three old ladies who meet every afternoon on a bench to chat together – strategically in the perfect position to follow the hustle and bustle in their little village. The unexpected appearance of a young female couple of unknown origin gets the trio into animated discussion and wild speculation, which also leads them back to their own past.
