Lu is a disruptive, rebellious teenage mother living with her daughter Nina in a women’s refuge run by a group of nuns in Buenos Aires. The arrival of Paola, a sympathetic Italian nun, who takes a shine to Nina, coincides with Lu going missing. What ensues is a sensitively directed and ultimately heart-breaking portrait of life in a refuge, providing a nuanced depiction of motherhood and religion that is both disarmingly funny and deeply moving.
