§ Dramatis Personae José López Portillo (m), 80, former President of Mexico; Sasha Montenegro (f), 55, trying to pass for 35, Mexican ex-porn star.
§ Synopsis “Sasha has prepared a lavish breakfast for her husband for their tenth wedding anniversary. She anticipates he will give her the deed to the mansion as promised. He gives her jewelry instead—and plans to treat her to a morning of love-making. ‘Food is not love,’ Lopez says. ‘Sex is not love,’ Sasha replies. She presses for the deed, naming the crimes and slights committed by other family members. When he finally gives it to her, she cannot accept it, realizing that she has been killing him with fatty foods and the over-stimulating sight of her. He insists, realizing for the first time that what makes him an extraordinary man is having her by his side.
