Plot – Spoilers:
A few days in the life of a young Argentinian prostitute who has a kid.
Alanis works in Buenos Aires until the cops raid her place. Left with nothing but her kid who’s still breastfeeding, she’s taken in by an elderly friend Andrea who runs a small clothing store.
The next few days are about habits and routines that die hard. How being youthful can confront hardship in a fairly relaxed manner. But also interestingly, how this casualness can then spill over into the way she views being helped.
That’s real-life mother and son.
