The inimitable Paulina García (star of Sebastián Leilo’s soaring character study Gloria) stars in this story of mid-life self-discovery from directorial duo Cecilia Atán and Valeria Pivato.

After working more than three decades as housekeeper to a Buenos Aires family, Teresa (García) is let go and must travel 700 miles for a new position in San Juan. On route, Teresa’s bus is forced to make an unexpected overnight stop in a desert town. A sudden storm and a lost bag propel Teresa on an unexpected odyssey in the company of a charismatic merchant named El Gringo (Claudio Rissi). Their search becomes a kind of impromptu courtship—and this elegant little film assumes a seductive air that will stay with you long after the closing credits. –Jaie Laplante
