Storyline

In Madrid's bustling streets, two perfect strangers, Caye, a thirty-year-old single woman, and Zulema, an illegal immigrant from the Dominican Republic, struggle to make ends meet working as prostitutes, of course, unbeknownst to their families. Under those circumstances and by an unforeseen twist of fate, the two rivals will quickly bond, and even though they are worlds apart, Caye and Zulema will soon realise that they have so much in common, and in reality, their coincidental and somewhat improbable encounter will be the beginning of a beautiful and profound friendship. Written by Nick Riganas

Princesas ( a good movie)
21 September 2007 | by saturn5534See all my reviews

This is a very well written movie based on reality. Actor's performances are great,I really enjoyed this movie it kept me glued to the TV screen until the end. I like the movie because is a drama of an immigrant whom driven by the bad economic situation of her country, was forced to leave the homeland and work as a prostitute in Madrid, Spain. She was sexually abused by a Spaniard bureaucrat with the promise of a visa to stay legally in the country. She mets a Spaniard girl whom just to be a prostitute too (Caye) they understand each other creating a true friendship until Zulema has to leave the country because her HIV results came back positive. A very human story that is worth to see it.
