Carmen, Lety, Raquel and Esther, who range from 50 to 80 years old, work the streets of La Merced in Mexico City, where life revolves around a town plaza. Age means nothing to these women, who still dance and seduce with the same energy they did in their youth. But with time comes a desire to seek out companionship and security, whether in the form of their fellow co-workers, older men, or their own deeply ingrained sense of self-reliance.

The four directors choose their own unique starting points to immerse the viewer in an experience that presents a series of images—almost mirages— of this monumental metropolis.
