Synopsis

" Kiss of the Spider Woman " is the story of two radically different men thrown together in a Latin American prison cell. One is Valentin, a journalist being tortured for his political beliefs. The other is Molina, a window-dresser who fills their lonely nights by spinning romantic fantasies drawn from memories of old movies. As their animosity gradually turns to respect, the two prisoners become entangled in an ever-tightening web of betrayal and self-sacrifice.
