The youngest daughter in her family, the beautiful Tita is forbidden to marry her true love, Pedro. Since tradition dictates that Tita must care for her mother, Pedro weds her older sister, Rosaura, though he still loves Tita. The situation creates much tension in the family, and Tita's powerful emotions begin to surface in fantastical ways through her cooking. As the years pass, unusual circumstances test the enduring love of Pedro and Tita.

Join Dr. Marco Katz, Department of English will be giving a Film Talk - an exploration of how cultural production crosses borders, both national and language, and the place of students and scholars in these exchanges.
