Las niñas bien
Sofia has been spoiled since her childhood, she is the queen bee of her group of friends. Now with a husband and a respectable family, she finds herself facing what she never imagined would happen… her social decay! Set in the 1982, the film follows Sofia and her family as they face the big economic crisis that is hitting Mexico. Trying hard to keep a strong front and pretend that she is not struggling, Sofia’s fall not only will be inevitable, it will also acknowledge what is lost when the money is gone.
