Director Sandra Kogut reunites for her second feature with Brazilian acting legend Regina Casé (The Second Mother) in a contemporary class comedy set over consecutive Summers

A brilliant comedy about class disparity... Madá is one of the charismatic Casé's most endearing characters.

Toronto International Film Festival

Casé plays Madá, the energetic, ever-resourceful caretaker for a luxury waterside condo owned by a wealthy family from Rio de Janeiro. Set against a backdrop of successive money-laundering scandals that rocked Brazilian society in this period, Kogut’s wry, incisive comedy is concerned with the social class that is left behind when their affluent employers suddenly go AWOL: “what happens to those people in the daily orbit of the rich and powerful when their lives suddenly crumble? What are the consequences for domestic workers when their employers land in jail?”. Madá and her stranded co-workers don’t have the luxury of sitting idle while matters resolve themselves. With can-do smarts to spare, the boisterous, indomitable Madá devises a side hustle or three to make ends meet.
