Almodovar's black comedy satire of Spain's religious institutions tells the story of nightclub singer Yolanda who finds refuge in a convent after the death of her drug addicted boyfriend. She discovers that the nuns there indulge in their own private sins. One of them takes drugs, another is into self-mortification, a third keeps a tiger in the convent's garden, another writes sensationalist pulp literature... As the convent is having financial trouble, the nuns decide to blackmail an aristocrat who has withdrawn her funding.
