Movie synopsis: Young Noeli lives with her unemployed boyfriend and makes her living by “relationships” with mostly elderly immigrants. She has such a relationship with an older French woman (Geraldine Chaplin), who will hopefully not only provide her with material security, but also take her on a trip to Paris. But the situation gets complicated when Noeli's pregnancy is confirmed and she is knocked off her motorcycle and mugged on her way from a party. The subtle drama focuses on the story of two different women and simultaneously touches the topic of social problems of today's Dominican Republic. Geraldine Chaplin's performance earned her the Best Actress Award at IFF Chicago.
