  • Amalia, the Secretary
  • Amalia, the Secretary

In this hilarious Colombian comedy, Amalia, a woman in her forties is the cranky secretary to the CEO of a family business going through hard times. 

Tidy and efficient, her employer prizes her ruthless lack of sympathy that keeps unwanted visitors away. Amalia leads a simple life of her own making: monotonous but safe. She is convinced that she needs nothing else. Until one day she meets Lazaro, a maintenance worker who comes to her office for a job. 

His completely opposite character to hers, his spontaneity and tendency to find chaos wherever he goes awakens unexpected feelings in her. So much so that she will create a little chaos of her own to keep him around.

Each actor in this impressive ensemble cast injects heart and soul into their respective characters.
