The Desert Bride

Teresa has been working for decades as a housemaid at a Buenos Aires house, when she is forced to look for a job in the faraway city of San Juan. While traveling there, the lonely and repressed woman loses her bag and decides to accept the help of a kind sales representative.

Under the pretext of finding the bag, the pair roams the Argentian desert in a pick-up truck. Their strangled desires bloom gradually and this journey with no destination turns into a journey towards personal freedom. Awarded actress Paulina Garcia (“Gloria”) presents us with an accurate depiction of unexpected love during a gentle journey to self-knowledge.
