SHE DOESN’T WANT TO SLEEP ALONEMexico | 2012
Programme time: 10.30
Amanda has a problem, if she is alone, she can’t sleep. Her days pass in a calm, orderly fashion; she fills her nights with lovers that help her pass the hours. Her world is upset overnight when she has to take care of her old and alcoholic grandmother Dolores, a retired actress who now lives on memories of her past glory.
