Clip: The Second Mother
An fresh take on some classic themes and ideas,"The Second Mother" centers around Val (Regina Casé), a hard- working live-in housekeeper in modern day Sao Paulo. Val is perfectly content to take care of her wealthy employers’ needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son. But when Val’s estranged daughter Jessica (Camila Márdila) suddenly shows up the unspoken class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray. Jessica is smart, confident, and ambitious, and refuses to accept the upstairs/downstairs dynamic, testing relationships and loyalties and forcing everyone to reconsider what family really means.
