“A captivating two-hander, as soothing as a desert breeze.” – The Hollywood Reporter

54-year-old Teresa has worked for decades as a live-in maid with a family in Buenos Aires. When the family sells the house, she is forced to take a job in the distant town of San Juan. Although feeling uncomfortable with traveling, she embarks on a journey through the desert. During her first stop, in the land of the miraculous “Saint Correa”, she loses her bag with all her belongings. This unexpected incident leads her to cross paths with El Gringo, a traveling salesman and the only person who can help Teresa find her bag. What seemed like the end of her world will ultimately prove her salvation.

Written and directed by Cecilia Atán and Valeria Pivato. Argentina/Chile. 78 minutes. DCP. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Teresa tiene 54 años y siempre ha trabajado como criada con una familia de Buenos Aires. La familia vende la casa y ella no tiene más remedio que aceptar un trabajo en San Juan, una ciudad lejana. A pesar de que no le gusta viajar, sube a un autobús para cruzar el desierto. En la primera parada del largo viaje, en la tierra de la milagrosa “Santa Correa”, pierde el bolso con todas sus pertenencias. El incidente hará que conozca a El Gringo, un vendedor ambulante y la única persona capaz de encontrar su bolso. Lo que parecía ser el fin del mundo se convierte en el comienzo de uno nuevo.
