"Tita and Pedro are a young couple deeply in love with each other. However, as the youngest daughter of a traditional Mexican family, Tita's clandestined obligations prevent her from ever entering the institution of marriage. It is a frustration which reveals itself as a preternatural ability for cooking food that, when consumed, results in not your normal post gastronomical behavior. Thus begins a complex, passionate, forbidden affair that flows like "water for chocolate". And what does that "
