Javier Rebollo was inspired for his second feature by the sight of a respectable lady sitting one night by a closed bus station. He couldn't get her out of his head. Who was she and what was she doing there in the middle of the night? This film had to provide the answer. Rosa is a housewife in Madrid. She cleans, works doing pedicures at home and cooks for her working husband. When he's asleep, she starts her second, nocturnal life in the street. Her encounters there have a tragic element, but they are also humorous and slightly absurd. Rebollo thinks in pictures and provides a stylish and aesthetic film with inventive shots that show two spaces or streets simultaneously. Occasionally, Rosa disappears from the frame and we hear her heels clicking in the dark, deserted streets.
