Sofía (Ilse Salas) lives the life of the rich and entitled. Her days are filled with shopping, visits to the beauty saloon and lunches at the tennis club. Her husband Fernando (Flavio Medina) has always provided her with a lavish lifestyle but when the eighties era Mexican economy takes a downturn, things will never be the same.
Sofía deals with this financial crises the only way she can, by completely ignoring it. Things are crumbling around her and it’s to the quality of Salas’ performance that you see this uncertainty and the fear it instills in her in such fine detail. It’s in the cracks of her tightly wound persona that the details become apparent. This is a voyeuristic tale of the rich with a stark reality at its centre.
