Sylvia works as a social worker in New York, caring for people with mental health issues at a public shelter. She leads a simple and structured life, and dutifully takes care of her daughter. After a party with a bunch of old high school classmates, she bumps into her former classmate Saul. He has secretly followed her all the way home and it's not until the next morning that she discovers him lying freezing in front of the entrance. Their surprising encounter has far-reaching consequences for both of them, opening doors to their past. After NUEVO ORDEN, director Michel Franco returns to ZFF with a profound, masterfully staged romantic drama. Academy Award-winner Jessica Chastain and Peter Saarsgard are an extraordinarily complimentary pair in the lead roles.
