The Desert Bride

Fifty-four-year-old Teresa has worked for decades as a live-in maid with a family in Buenos Aires. When the family sells the house, she is forced to take a job in the distant town of San Juan. Although feeling uncomfortable with traveling, she embarks on a journey through the desert. During her first stop, she loses her bag with all her belongings. This unexpected incident leads her to cross paths with El Gringo, a traveling salesman, the only one who can help Teresa find her bag. What seemed like the end of her world will ultimately prove her salvation.
