The daily routine and grand ambitions of a hard-working young chambermaid at a high-end Mexican hotel are poignantly explored in Lila Avilés’s striking debut feature.

Eve (Gabriela Cartol) works long hours as a maid at a luxurious hotel in Mexico City. A young, single mother who travels far to get to her place of work, Eve has aspirations for the future and hopes that her diligence will get her a coveted spot as the cleaner on an executive floor. She enrolls in the hotel's adult education program in her quest for a better life but quickly discovers that it's not necessarily the most hard-working who get noticed for advancemen.

“The Chambermaid's quietness, subtlety and modesty of style always keep it dramatically engaging.” - Johnathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter
