Storyline

Divorced for more than ten years, Gloria, a vibrant 58-year-old office clerk in Santiago and mother of two grown-up kids, craves for adventure, refusing to spend the rest of her life in solitude and self-pity. Instead, the vivacious Gloria embraces her freedom, and because of her love for dance and an aching longing for companionship, she will meet Rodolfo, a recently divorced former naval officer, and will daringly decide to give love a second chance. Regretfully; however, Rodolfo comes with baggage, and even though Gloria is sincerely attracted to him, reality's harsh truth will inevitably bring her face-to-face with towering obstacles, rather than undiluted excitement and ardent passion. In the end, Gloria alone, yet surrounded by people, sad but at the same time happy, will she ultimately find the strength to overcome them? Written by Nick Riganas

Thoughtful and touching portrayal of a middle-aged divorced woman trying to find where she fits in life.
30 May 2014 | by connie_huanteSee all my reviews

I saw this film on a fluke last night and found it surprisingly enjoyable. I thought Paulina Garcia was excellent in her portrayal of the middle- aged, divorced "Gloria" attempting to find herself now that her kids are grown and have lives of their own. Her "romantic" encounter is pretty heartbreaking and realistically portrayed. I thought the film was a great character analysis of the challenges that the new "golden aged" generation in many Western countries deal with; a bit of isolation (as kids grow and start their own families), conflicting loyalties to lovers versus family (for those that are divorced), commitment to work, finding how to fit in as older adults, in a youthful and rapidly changing society.
