Drama | Romance | Mortality | Faith | Journey

Teresa (Paulina García) is forced to take a job in San Juan after the family she has served as a live-in maid for decades sell their house. Embarking on a coach journey across the dusty plains, Teresa is a nervous traveller and apprehensive about her future, so an unscheduled stopover at a sanctuary town where pilgrims come to visit the shrine of Saint Correa only heightens her anxiety. She fatefully crosses paths with jovial salesman El Gringo (Claudio Rissi). A subtle, unshowy performance from Garcia, in contrast to her breakout turn in Sebastian Lelio’s Gloria (2013), is at the centre of this moving and evocative road movie.
