High Heels (Tacones Lejanos) is a murder mystery comedy centering on flamboyant actress Becky del Paramo (Marisa Paredes) and her daughter Rebecca (Victoria Abril), a television anchorwoman. After being estranged for 15 years, Becky re-enters Rebecca's life when she comes to perform a concert. Rebecca, she finds, is now married to one of Becky's ex-lovers, Manuel (Feodor Atkine). The mother and daughter begin making up for lost time, when suddenly, a murder occurs.
Unfortunately, exactly who is responsible for the homicide remains unclear, even after there is a confession.
