The always charming, perfect and spoiled Sofia, the queen bee of her group of friends, faces the unimaginable, her social decay. It’s 1982 and a big economic crisis is hitting Mexico. Sofia will have to maintain the appearances but her fall not only will be inevitable, it will also acknowledge what is lost when the money is gone.
