Directed by Lila Avilés
A young maid at a luxurious Mexico City hotel confronts the monotony of long workdays with quiet examinations of forgotten belongings and budding friendships that nourish her newfound and determined dream for a better life.
"Winningly grounded. A compassionate tribute to Mexico’s anonymous laboring classes."
"Formally confident and technically polished. Avilés is an exciting find."
"Possessed of a deadpan wit and downplayed humanistic warmth... and a poised lead performance by Gabriela Cartol. It will mark Avilés as a name to watch."
"Nuanced and natural, it has a quiet and modest power as it comments on the ironies of contemporary cities like Mexico City and their growing economic divide."
