Brazil | 112 minutes | DCP | Dir. Anna Muylaert

A loving live-in nanny, Val, has diligently worked for a wealthy family in Sao Paulo. She takes her various duties seriously, earning money to send back home to her daughter Jessica- whom she has not seen in 10 years. When Jessica comes to the city to take college entrance exams and stays with her mother and the family she works for, Jessica's presence reveals the boundaries Val has confined to for years, guiding the audience in a hilarious journey in questioning the unspoken rules of power in the household.
