Pepa's (Maura) lover leaves her and she tries to contact him to find out why he's left. In her search for him, she confronts his wife and son, who are as clueless as she is. Meanwhile; Candela (Barranco), her friend, is afraid the police might be looking for her because of her ex-boyfriend is suspected of criminal activity, and so happens to be a terrorist. As the plot develops, it is revealed that everyone's lives are more intertwined than they could have ever expected.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1989.
