In one of Mexico City’s most luxurious hotels, Eve is a conscientious maid with a broad smile and kind demeanour, paying attention to the details that make a top hotel so rewarding a stay. Enrolling in the hotel’s adult education programme, she hopes her professionalism will bring her promotion to Hotel Presidente’s exclusive penthouse floor. But her long, laborious shifts prevent Eve from caring for her child, and when things don’t progress as planned, she transforms her newfound courage into the necessary strength to face a life outside the glimmering tower.

“Quietly is a work of closely observed workplace realism, but at times it achieves the strangeness and intensity of science fiction.” A.O. Scott, The New York Times
