Eve is a young chambermaid working in one of the most luxurious hotels in Mexico City, an exclusive glass tower inhabited by guests so wealthy she can only imagine their lives through intimate fantasies of the belongings they’ve left behind.
Long work shifts prevent Eve from caring for her own child while she helps guests with their own children, but she believes her situation will improve if she gets promoted to work at the executive-level suites. So she accepts a grueling schedule and enrolls in the hotel’s adult education program. A budding friendship with her coworker and an awkward, silent flirtation with an inaccessible window-washer prod her toward much needed bravery. But when things don’t go as planned, Eve transforms her lonely explorations and newfound courage into the necessary strength to face a life outside the glimmering tower. — Kino Lorber
