Mexican film legend Maria Rojo stars in this delicately crafted drama as Julia, a single mother employed as a telephone operator. The high point of her week is to relax at the danzon, a weekly dance where dancing partners needn't be romantic partners. When Julia s regular partner an older man whose courtesy and politeness she values turns up missing, she travels to Veracruz to search for him. In the course of her quest, she ends up finding herself. Rojo offers a subtle portrait of an everyday woman who faces trouble in order to uncover her strengths.
Award-winning director Maria Novaro (Lola; The Garden of Eden) reveals a fondness for the tradition of the danzon, and for Mexico's singers and songs of the '40s and '50s. Her celebration of popular traditions from Mexico s past is contagious.
