Overworked cleaning lady Gloria takes various jobs to make ends meet. Her unforgiving life is filled with eccentric characters: an abusive taxi driver husband, a drug-dealer teenage son, an unappreciative mother-in-law, and a sex worker neighbour who pays Gloria to sit in with exhibitionist clients.
Delving deeper into Almodóvar’s 80s period, we bring you this nightmarish cult comedy—the first of the auteur’s films to be well received in Spain. Confronting the repression of a society in recovery from dictatorship, What Have I Done flirts with neorealism while proudly transgressing its rules.
