After working for more than 40 years in the nightlife, Doña Olga is now La Mami, the caretaker of the women’s restroom at the mythical Cabaret Barba Azul. Night after night, she takes care of the dancers working to the flow of live music. This restroom is a trusting bubble inside Barba Azul. Today, there is a new woman arriving at the restroom. She has a sick son and needs to work.
