A woman with no name lives with a pack of dogs in quiet, self-imposed exile in the pampa on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Almost without words, this quiet film observes the hermit over the course of the four seasons, as she repairs her ramshackle hut in the woods, moves through the landscape, looks for food and occasionally steals it. And how she makes the occasional foray into the city, but with as little contact to other human beings as possible. Dog Lady is an impressive study of an autonomous woman which doesn't attempt to explain anything and lets its protagonist keep her secret.
