Storyline

Having worked as a maid her whole life, Justina's former employer leaves her an enormous mansion deep in the Argentinian Pampa. The only condition is that she must never sell it. As the house falls to pieces and the farm animals are sold off, Alexia, her daughter, gets ready to return to the city. The film follows the last months spent together by mother and daughter in a bittersweet fairy tale offering the promise of salvation.
