An actress in the low-season. An assistant trapped by the routine. A crime that will give them the opportunity to redeem themselves.
For years, Esther had been working as a cleaner in large stores, taking each day as it came. Until that year in the late nineties when she met Catalina Muñoz.
Cleaning the house of that almost retired actress seemed like torture. Tense, grumpy and somewhat conceited, her new boss hadn’t even asked her for help: it had been AISGE, a foundation that cared for artists, that was responsible for such a curious union. But as the days went by, Esther discovered that not everything in the actress’s home was shrouded in darkness. The actress ignores her lives that have become trapped in a brilliant past world, but, little by little, she will make Esther a part of this world. These stories about film and glamour that Catalina shares with her cleaner are the beginning of a bond that will prepare them for the most important roles of their lives.
An irresistible story of friendship between two women from very different worlds who come together through murder.
The narrative debut of this well-known author is a thriller in the most Almodovarian style.
