Ana is a rich housewife. To her annoyance, her husband rents out her garden to a soap-opera production and then disappears on a business trip. Erring on to the set, she gets mistaken for an actress and is given a part in the series. The boundaries between reality and fiction in her mind begin to blur. Alvaro Velarde’sfeature film debut is a bright and energetic pastiche of Latin America’s obsession with soap-operas.
