An intimate portrait of the ways, small and large, one family maintains its balance in a time of personal, social and political strife. In the 1970s Mexico City. A young domestic worker Cleo from Mixteco heritage descent and her co-worker Adela, also Mixteca, work for a small family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma. Mother of four, Sofia, copes with the extended absence of her husband, Cleo faces her own devastating news that threatens to distract her from caring for Sofia’s children, whom she loves as her own. While trying to construct a new sense of love and solidarity in a context of a social hierarchy where class and race are perversely intertwined, Cleo and Sofia quietly wrestle with changes infiltrating the family home in a country facing confrontation between a government-backed militia and student demonstrators.
