Synopsis

In Mexico City in 1970 during a period of political unrest, Cleo, a young woman of Mixteco heritage, is employed as a live-in domestic worker by middle-class mother of four Sofía, who struggles to cope with the extended absence of her doctor husband. Over the course of a year, Cleo comes to love the children as if they are her own, but her duties leave little time for her to have an independent life.
