A job as a seamstress tempts Juana, a young Bolivian woman, to neighbouring Argentina. Her husband and child remain behind in their homeland. It doesn’t take long for the illusion of financial gain to burst – Juana is being exploited and must produce textiles for a luxury brand. Her employer’s demands become ever more absurd, working conditions become unbearable. When her son becomes ill, Juana starts making plans to return, but as far as her employer is concerned, leaving is not an option.
