Carne trémula (1997)

Clara (Angela Molina) is finally leaving her abusive husband Sancho, so she’s quickly packing some toiletries. In her bathroom there are many beauty products.

There’s also a black box with gold band I haven’t been able to identify. It may be related to No. 5, but I have no idea what it can be.
