A woman's journey toward rediscovering herself after working as a maid for 23 years.
Catalina Saavedra has a masterful performance as Raquel, a mid-aged woman who is desperately trying to hold onto the power she has as a maid in La Nana. After working for the same affluent family in Chile for 23 years, Raquel considers herself family, but when new challenges arise she begins to reevaluate her place in the household. So begins a truly hilarious, but also thoughtful script of various characters coming at odds with each other in unexpected ways. There is a beauty in the chaos of this Chilean film as well as a genuine depiction of South American culture that provides appetizing realism in each scene.
