An honest portrait of five women who go through the night looking for other possibilities of beauty, while discovering the passing of time, lost youth, the mirage that is fame and the chance for happiness.
Claudia, a lonely young woman, works in a supermarket. One night, she ends up in the hospital with a severe case of appendicitis. There, she meets Martha, the woman resting in the bed next to hers. Martha, who lives alone with her four children, gains Claudia's trust. When she gets out of the hospital, she spontaneously offers Claudia to go home with them. Getting to know this family makes Claudia feel at ease. And for the first time she experiences a sense of belonging in this peculiar little tribe. As Martha's health weakens every day the bond Claudia has with each member of the family grows stronger. Written by
Watched this film in BIFFES (2013)Bangalore International Film Festival and it was very much worth it. The leading lady looks really beautiful and has given very good performance in this movie. The movie revolves around Claudia and how she becomes a part of a family whom she doesn't even relate to(by blood).
Its an ordinary story of a family and a woman with stellar performances and direction. The music compliments the movie and offers good viewing experience.
The synopsis has already been given, so i wont dig into the story part. An average poor or middle class family with different types of Characters and the way Claudia handles situations. Circumstances and situations make it like Claudia needs them and they needs Claudia. Very good direction and good performances to look out for.
