The salesman told Jesús and María that the (almost) unbreakable glass table was a bargain, although it cost the best part of 1,000 bucks. He also told María and Jesús that it was the prettiest one in the whole department store. María, now a mother after her fertility treatment, rightly finds it horrific. Jesús, who'd doesn't even like the child's name, Cayetano, loves it. Or maybe not. But he insists on buying it. If the director weren't Caye Casas (Killing God, 2017) and the screenwriter Cristina Borobia, there might perhaps be some chance that things would work out fine for María, Jesús and little Cayetano. But they are. And so even when things can't get any worse, they will.
