Princesses / Fernando Leόn de Aranoa

Caye is a young woman who has family problems and decides to become a prostitute. One day she discovers quite by chance that her Latin-American neighbour, Zulema, who is also a prostitute, has been attacked. She takes her to hospital and a solid friendship begins to develop between the two women. From then on they will share their sorrows and joys, the strains of the profession but also their sweetest dreams, in the case of Zulema to be reunited to her son and her fear of a civil servant who is blackmailing her, and in the case of Caye her wish to have cosmetic breast surgery. When Zulema decides to go back to her country, Caye will leave the door open to her family so that they can find out exactly how she makes her living.
