Based on the short story La puerta condenada (The Condemned Door) by Julio Cortázar (1914-1984) from the 1956 collection Final del juego.

An important element in the story is the (perhaps machismo-influenced) supposition that an unmarried woman without child will feel so unfulfilled that it can lead to a "hysteric" behaviour that she will imagine having an imaginary infant. The use of monologue interieur, street language, surreal elements, jazz influence are elements of his sometime quite experimental work.
The full story can be read here (both Spanish & English).
