Dora breaths in her dignity and resigns. She wants to finish work on her own house, with her less than reliable mate, Miguel. She also looks for a new job. Beba asks her ex-husband for financial help. He demurs. Can Beba adjust to new realities, find a way to pay Dora, and honor her lifetime of service, and can either make a life without the other? Does sisterhood cross class lines?
Plot: Buenos Aires is in a deep recession. As the money runs out, the relationship between an employer and her live-in maid changes dramatically.

Wonderful acting–struggling with reduced circumstances
Senora Beba is a 50 something (approaching 60) woman who is having to learn to live with reduced circumstances. She is the perfect upper middle class rattle brained blond who is maybe really not so rattle brained.
Dora is her live in maid of 30 years who is going to quit because Senora Beba can no longer pay her salary reliably.
Neither one want this to happen.
It is a wonderful look at life as you get older live alone and have less income.
Both characters and the film are 100% real.
This movie is a must see.
Subtle, entertaining, heartbreaking, deep, sophisticated – Argentinean
This film to me is undoubtedly one of the rare and stupendous examples of what they call (in the best sense possible) – an “actors’ director”, or in this case, rather – an actresses’ one. I shall not bore you with the plot, it is all in the respective IMDb section, instead I will tell why I consider this a must-see for anyone who appreciates stories about relationships, who enjoys and values the intricacies of a female character (in this case – two rather opposite ones) beautifully unfolded. The love-and-hate relationship between the lady of the house (a bit delusional, totally broke and trying desperately to save her face) and her mucama, played to perfection by the grand Norma Aleandro and the fantastic discovery of Jorge Gaggero – Norma Argentina. What amazes me is how incredibly sensitive the director is to the enormous difference in characters of the actresses and their approaches, how seamlessly he makes that gap serve the purpose of his brilliantly written story. Every scene is a master class in subtlety, wit and purposefulness. In my view, many new directors will benefit enormously if they watch the film with an open mind. I was astonished by the fact that Ms. Argentina had never appeared on screen or stage before, she is breathtakingly effective in every shot, and the honest simplicity she contrasts to Aleandro’s sophistication is a delight to observe. Absolutely recommended – the film is made with very apparent love for the woman, for Argentina and exquisite artistic taste and mastery. 10/10 from me.
