The Mrs, an old widow, and Aridia, her young domestic servant, live together in an orchid-filled house in Santo Domingo. Aridia cleans, the Mrs gardens; sometimes they gossip. But the atmosphere can get tense: when the Mrs gets angry with Aridia and Aridia defends herself, the Mrs reminds her “where her place is.” "You and Me" is a moving, closely observed portrait of the complex relationship between two women that goes beyond merely employer and employee.

Cast: Paula Lebrón, Francisca Pérez de Sosa
