“A well-judged balance between dark humor and an in-depth portrait of a woman battling to maintain the smooth appearance of a perfect life” –Variety

Mexico City 1982. Affluent and arrogant, queen bee Sofia (Ilse Salas) rules over the city’s social elite—until the family business falls victim to the national economic crisis. Even as checks bounce and lunch invitations vanish, Sofia maintains her haughty airs. How far will she go to reclaim her place? This incisive satire, as stylish and sharp as its protagonist, brilliantly lampoons the lifestyles of the rich and not-so-famous.
