Watch Like Water for Chocolate
From Old Mexico comes an epic love story. Pedro and Tita are in love and want to get married. As tradition would have it the youngest daughter is not allowed to marry because of her duties to take care of her ailing mother. Traditions hold strong in this era and Tita's mother holds strong to her culture. Tita's mother then does the unthinkable, she allows Pedro to marry her eldest daughter and he accepts. They move in with Tita and her mother and desperately try to live as a family. However, unspoken love between Tita and Pedro is stronger than ever.
Tita is not moved by the loss of her mother or her sister and clings to the hope that one day she too will be happy.
