An award winner at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, this droll comedy from Uruguay tells the story of sock factory owner Jacobo and his employee Marta, two people who work together but barely communicate. But when Jacobo's estranged brother -- a happily married man -- visits, the competitive Jacobo tells his sibling that he and Marta are husband and wife. Pretending to have an intimate bond, the "couple" soon finds their lives radically altered.
