Adult

Elena is standing in a porno shop, feeling embarrassed. She is looking at the covers of the hard-core video cassettes on display: heterosexual, lesbian, gay, the sculpted bodies of the actors, twisting themselves into sexual positions and showing off their rock-hard erections. The curious gaze of the sales assistant, while he sells her one. Elena, in a cold and sad home, looking at explicit images of her dead son, as they were caught on the VHS tape, so conflicting with her memories as his mother.
