Wanda Seux, one of Mexico’s most emblematic actresses and showgirls during the 80’s, has fallen to an abyss, dragged down by the death of her mother, her solitude, and the passage of time. Wanda, however, struggles every day to rise from that vacuum and walk through that dark tunnel into the light of plenitude.
