A woman from a poor background takes a job as a housekeeper for a rich family on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. The new surroundings of expensive houses and English lawns are clearly framed by high walls that run as a border between rich and poor. While on one of her walks, however, the woman discovers a nudist camp – and with it, the promise of a new found freedom.
