Lucio and Martina had a passionate romance during their youth at a strict Catholic high school. 25 years later, they unexpectedly run into each other in the city of San Miguel de Allende. Their immediate reaction is to each pretend to be married happily––even if it’s all lies. As they try to maintain their false images in a comedy of errors, we find out just what happened between the young couple so long ago.
You’re Killing Me Susana follows a man on a quest to reclaim the woman he loves. Eligio (Gael Garcia Bernal), a fun-loving, charismatic actor wakes up one morning to realize that his wife Susana (Veronica Echegui) has left him without a word or warning. He soon discovers she’s relocated to Iowa, Eligio sells off his car and gets on a plane from his native Mexico City to go after her. From the moment he gets off the plane in the Midwest university town Eligio is like a fish out of water. Things only get worse when the short, dark and loquacious Eligio discovers Susana has started a relationship with huge, mysterious and pasty white poet Slawomir (Hlynur Harraldson).
