Synopsis

Director: Cecilia Atán and Valeria Pivato.
Starring: Paulina García, Claudio Rissi.


In this delicately observed Argentinian road movie, Gloria’s Paulina García, gives another beautifully nuanced performance as 54-year-old Teresa, who has worked for decades as a live-in maid for a family in Buenos Aires.  When the family sells the house, she is forced to take a job in a distant town.  On the journey to her new employers she loses her small bag packed with all her possessions. This unexpected incident leads her to cross paths with El Gringo, a traveling salesman, and together they set off in search for her possessions. His gentle, free spirit allows Teresa to blossom, and what seemed like the end of her world will ultimately prove her salvation.
