While searching the city for her former lover, Manuela reluctantly becomes the hub of a makeshift matriarchal community that includes a pregnant nun, a trans hustler, and the glamorous actress whom her son idolized. With TODO SOBRE MI MADRE, Almodóvar set out to make a film in the vein of the director he had long proclaimed his idol – Douglas Sirk – and took home his first Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in return.
