It tells the story of Teresa, a 54-year-old woman who works as a domestic employee in a family home in Buenos Aires. For decades she has taken refuge in the routine of her tasks, but now that the family has decided to sell the house, her life begins to totter.Written by
A maid loses her job in one Argentinian city and books bus passage to her new job in another city, and while waiting for the bus to leave she goes to try on a dress at an itinerant shopping street set up for sellers who pack up that evening. She leaves a bag containing personal items such as clothes in the seller's van. She tracks down the seller who claims not have the bag, but will help her look for it as they drive to his previous stops.
Evaluation: Not much happening other than driving across a desert; some tedious walking & talking to people they meet. She risks losing her new job, and for what? Not sure, bag is small & boring; content of talking was boring; places & people visited - boring. Ending - inconclusive. Storyline had potential, but unfulfilled.
