Raquel (Catalina Saavedra), who has spent that last 23 years in service to the Valdes family, looks upon herself as not just a maid but more as part of the family. However, when Raquel has increasingly bitter clashes with the eldest Valdes daughter, the family think she is becoming stressed out with too much work and so hire additional help.

Unfortunately instead of placating Raquel she sees each new maid as a challenge, and sabotages the new employees by resorting to childish antics, in an attempt to maintain her status quo.

Sebastian Silva second feature questions, without prejudice, the remnants of class division and the aristocratic tradition of domestic service, and achieves a highly perceptive and comedic drama.
