Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Director Mariano Galperin takes the helm for this gender bending satire about a stubborn chef who is forced to go to work as a female maid. Ramon is a successful chef who lives in a modest house with his loving wife Lili. When Ramon is dismissed from his do in large to his poor attitude, he takes comfort in the fact that he will quickly land another job thanks to his proficiency with a spatula and skillet. Unfortunately the economy in Argentina quickly takes a turn for the worse, and the couple soon is forced to face the possibility that their house may be repossessed. As Lili suffers a nervous breakdown and leaves home to recover with her family in the country, Ramon notices a help wanted ad for a in-house maid. But the job posting is for females only, and now in order to save his home and his marriage Ramon will have to shave off his stubble, and put on a dress. As the ruse grows complicated, confusion and jealously take precedence over logic and level-headedness, and a bizarre kidnapping plot begins to unfold. Still, now matter how strange things get, Lili and Ramon always seem to find a means of making love work.
