Following the death of her husband, the powerful and uncompromisingly domineering Bernada Alba enforces a prolonged and strict period of mourning on her household and her five daughters. Frustrated by their mother's tyrany and envious of the eldest daughters forthcoming marriage to the eligible Pepe el Romano, the women become entangled in in a web of jealousy, spite and suppressed sexual tension the consequences of which prove devastating!

The House of Bernarda Alba combines an allegorical attack on the Fascism that was taking over Spain in 1936 with a searingly sad view of what can happen when passions are repressed under the guidance of a strong religion.
