About the film

Director: Andrés Burgos
Actors: Ana María Arango, Enrique Carriazo, Marcela Benjumea
In this hilarious Colombian comedy, Amalia, a woman in her forties has unexpected feelings awakened in her by her building’s chaotic handyman.

Amalia is the secretary to the CEO of a family business going through hard times. Cranky but efficient, Amalia is convinced her simple life is enough. Until one day she meets Lazaro, a maintenance worker who comes to her office for a job. His completely opposite character to hers, his spontaneity and tendency to find chaos wherever he goes deeply affects her. So much so that she will create a little chaos of her own to keep him around.

“Each actor in this impressive ensemble cast injects heart and soul into their respective characters.”
