An old woman and her housekeeper live alone in a big house. As the older woman's body starts to betray her, the housekeeper sees to take care of her, changing the boundaries of their relationship. At the same time the housekeeper faces the decision to go home and take care of her family or remain in her job far away from them. The short shows the deep division between social classes that is still the norm in Guatemala, a vestige of colonialism. At the same time the short tries to show the difficulties of aging and working far away from those you love.Written by
