Clara, a free-spirited prostitute in Buenos Aires who is full of vague plans and dreams, tries to shield herself from an ominous world. Answering only to her own laws, she reacts with inner strength and may even save herself from certain death. Clara mixes social commentary with tender humor, capturing a segment of humanity in Buenos Aires during the turbulent 1950s.
