Mexico City: A Mexican-German family is in need of contracting a domestic employee to look after her 4-month-old baby. Amanda calls Yolanda, her former babysitter to do the job. Yolanda is illiterate and Juan her husband is an alcoholic. Yolanda will accept the challenge. Hans and Amanda embark on a trip which will define Yolanda and prove if her will is stronger than her ignorance. Long bus rides, confusion in the city, and a rhetoric of symbols surround Yolanda and Juan in a roller coaster drama of our time. Death, trafficking with children, guilt and forgiveness are elements present in the denouement of the history.
