Description

Teenager Sara’s powerful family from Santo Domingo has just moved to the coastal town of Las Terrena. With them comes Yasira, Sara’s nanny and confidante, whom the girl considers to be like family. When a tragedy occurs, threatening the family, their relationship is tested.

For Sara, Yasira is the most important person in her life. The upper-class girl is therefore delighted to have Yasira by her side when the family moves to the rural seaside. But for Yasira, the move means a return to her hometown–and to her biological daughter Mallory, whom she left behind to work. Soon Sara and Mallory become friends. After a night of partying, however, a tragedy occurs that tests their relationship and reveals some terrible personal and societal truths. “Concise and compelling…” –Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
