Directed by Silvina Schnicer & Ulises Porra

Wealthy teenager Sara and her nanny Yarisa have a mother-daughter relationship that seems to transcend their class conditions, but an accident will test their intimate loyalty and the innocent illusion that nothing can separate them.

Sara enjoys a privileged life in a beachside idyll in the Dominican Republic, treating Yari like a sister or surrogate mother. As a result, Yari has neglected her own daughter, Mallory, who lives in a modest house nearby. The domination of one class over the other leads to a supposed natural order which, when push comes to shove, quickly ranks some people as disposable. A beautiful and compelling drama that examines the toxic class-race dynamics perpetuated by social injustice and the colonial legacy.

Plus/ This film will be preceded by Tula (Dir Bea de Silva/ES 2022/13 mins).
