Every afternoon Noeli, a young Dominican girl, goes to the beaches with her boyfriend to scam tourists. Anne falls pray and hopelessly in love with Noeli, who will do anything to leave her country. While Anne possesses the power and money, Noeli has her youthful body as a bargaining chip for that coveted visa. With her sight firmly on France, Noeli requests more and more money from Anne to support herself and a young man she calls her brother. As the date to leave for France draws nearer, each woman’s mask is slowly peeled off, leaving each to confront her love and loneliness.
"Ms. Chaplin, in one of her most touching screen performances, imbues Anne with a world-weary melancholy that makes your heart sink.'-Stephen Holden, New York Times
