El Audífono (The Earpiece)

Fernando and Perfecta are a married couple who have been married for 50 years. He is an amateur magician, who is a bit deaf and forgetful. He uses his magic to draw his wife's attention. However, she only cares about her cats, because they disappear in strange circumstances. One day, Perfecta finds out that Fernando is the one who is responsible for the cats disapearance and the strange death of her beloved cats, so she takes revenge in their anniversary dinner.
