    • Synopsis
    • When people see them on the street they murmur. All of them were an icon in their time, almost 30 years ago. It was enough that they went somewhere to paralyze the public and the press. They were the face of great television, graphic, theatrical, cinematographic and radial successes of Argentina. They stopped the traffic of Corrientes Avenue, theatrical and cultural heart of Buenos Aires.
      Over time some of them voluntarily stepped away from the spotlight. Others struggled to stay in a showbusiness that no longer value them as before.
      At the beginning of 2015 they were summoned by José María Muscari, a theater director and playwright with over 20 years of experience, to return to work in theater.
      This documentary gets into the dressing rooms, in the intimacy of the cast, shows us how are the minutes before the show, how they prepare, how they get between them. But it also introduces us into the lives of each of these women, seeking to be a portrait not of his past but of his present.
      What brings them back? Recognition of the public, money, fame? How do they face the public every night? How do they see themselves? Do they have a realistic look at their careers, their lives, their bodies? How does a sex symbol age?
