Dona Flor is a bureaucrat. She has worked in the same government office in Mexico City for over 35 years, attending to people from all the corners of Mexican society--rich, poor, educated and illiterate alike. One day her life becomes unhinged and she goes to the pool seeking solace in the water, but is paralyzed by fear until a gesture of kindness from another woman resuscitates her. Exploring the interior life of DoAa Flor, as she awakens from her bureaucratic slumber and yearns to become visible again, the story is a mesmerizing contemplation on solitude.
