Sofia is always charming, perfect and spoiled and she is the queen bee of her group of friends. But she is facing the unimaginable – a fall from her social perch. It’s 1982 and an economic crisis is hitting Mexico. Sofia will have to maintain appearances but she has to acknowledge that her loss of status is inevitable. She will also have to learn how to live without the money she has always taken for granted.
