Set in 1970 and 1971, the story centers on a middle-class family in the Mexico City neighborhood of Colonia Roma; it chronicles the turmoil of two vulnerable women, Sofa , a mother of four whose husband is about to leave her, and Cleo , an indigenous woman who is one of the family's two live-in maids.
