Boasting outstanding performances by Karina Gidi and Daniel Giménez Cacho, Natalia Beristáin’s second feature film is an unconventional biopic about the late Rosario Castellanos, one of Mexico’s top literary voices of the twentieth century. The film picks up her life in the 1950s when, as an introverted university student in Mexico City, she fights to have her voice heard in a society run by men. She is about to become one of the biggest female writers in Mexican literature, but her tumultuous love story with philosophy professor Ricardo Guerra will manifest her fragility and contradictions. At the peak of her career and her marriage, she ignites a discussion that will mark a turning point in her life.
