On the outskirts of Buenos Aires in 1907, Doctor Quintana pines for head nurse Menendez while he and his colleagues embark on a grisly series of experiments to investigate the line between life and death. One hundred years later, a celebrated artist goes to extremes in search of aesthetic transformation, turning himself into an art object. The world of Comemadre is full of vulgarity, excess and farce- but the monstrous is not alien, rather the consequence of our relentless drive for collective and personal progress.
