50-year-old Maria works in the local supermarket, spends her free time mainly in her own flat full of ruined figures of Mary, smoking cigarettes, sipping martinis, and taking long baths. This routine is interrupted from time to time by the always unannounced and chaotic visit of her niece, Helena. She visits her aunt when she is tired and wounded by the outside world. Together they hide from it. When a routine visit to a gynaecologist results in a badly administered hormone treatment, Maria's senses awaken to life and we accompany her on her new journey.
Through an expressive visual style and fairy-tale elements, the director has created a fascinating world that draws the audience in. A comedy-drama about an erotic awakening and the price women pay for being themselves.
