The women--Andrea, a lawyer; Sofia, a therapist; Irene, a clothing designer; and Lily, a visual artist--all have serious issues that they must confront concerning their personal lives. Jose Luis Valenzuela's film presents an honest, intelligent glimpse into a world that has never been explored so sincerely on celluloid before.
