What I liked

Sárita the main character and lichita the supporting actress are both women whose authenticity and sincerity is captured perfectly throygh their use of language, mannerisms and expressions. Your heart goes out to sarita and lichitas strength and support is what solidarity looks like.
Truly and example of how sexual violence needs to be dealt with with changing culture.

What I didn't like

Perfect as it

My overall impression

This obra is truly a work of art. No paid or professional actors no dramatization to fit the screen. These are real life janitors based on real stories or sexual violence, rape, assault and harrasment they have experienced on the night shift. Jeannette Godoy brings to stage healing through the work of theatre and cultura. This is theatre at its finest. Working with low wage immigrant workers to capture their experiences in their own words, actions and expression. One of a kind, a lessson to all of us that we can learn so much from women society deems invisible and whose voices have been marginalized even more within the me too dialogue. Times not up. It’s been up.
