Synopsis

A fantasy film made under the theme of 'FIRE' in a series of films on the four elements. The story centres around twenty year old twins Armando and Beatriz who together, pass their exams as apprentice firefighters. Their closeness is broken by a neighbour who starts a flirtation with Armando and causes Beatriz to experience an unusual symptom of jealousy. Beatriz imagines that she hears flames crackling in her ears. These can only be put out by kisses from attractive strangers. This in turn leads to tension with her brother. The happy ending suggests a vaguely incestuous relationship.
