From two-time Academy Award-winner Pedro Almodovar comes Volver, a comedic and compassionate tribute to women and their resilience in the face of life's most outrageous tribulations.

Raimunda and her sister Sole lost their parents in a tragic fire years ago...or did they? Superstitious villagers claim that the girls' departed mother, Irene, has been seen wandering around their Aunt Paula's home. When Irene appears to Sole, she explains that she has returned to set right her daughters' troubled lives and reveal shocking secrets that will impact everyone! Raimunda has "women's troubles" of her own, least of which is a corpse in the freezer!

Winner of numerous film festival and critics' awards, Volver is a hilarious tale of love, loss, and forgiveness.
