Worth Watching? Maybe, if you speak Spanish?

Major LGBT Tropes: Girls Behind Bars, Situational Sexuality, Bury Your Gays

Synopsis (from imdb): A nurse is framed for murder by negligence. She goes to prison pregnant by her rich boss.

My Thoughts: This is another movie without subtitles. Language barriers suck. There is a lot of face slapping. It was surprising at first, but by the end I was pretty good at predicting when a slap fight was about the break out. There is also a pillow fight. I don't speak Spanish and the lesbian subplot is very subtle, so I actually caught none of it. I had to Google to figure out who the lesbian couple is supposed to be. Watch it for face slaps and pillow fights, and maybe also if you speak Spanish.
