In this delicate, melancholic romance, a young woman from Mexico City finds herself torn between her Jewish family and a forbidden love. Pressured to find an appropriate suitor, serendipity leads to a passionate courtship with a non-Jewish radio station employee who shows her a world of possibilities beyond her sheltered life. As their feelings deepen, she must weigh their unsanctioned relationship against rejection by her family and community, where religious values and traditions run deep. Bridging the divide between generations and cultures, writer-director Santiago Salinas directorial debut deftly blends romantic comedy with an incisive feminist journey of discovery and self-determination.
