The “princesas” of the film’s title are two young prostitutes on the streets of Madrid: Spanish-born Caye, who is hiding her profession from her middle-class family and is disturbed by the influx of competition from other countries, and Zulema, an undocumented immigrant from the Dominican Republic who is sending money home to her mother and son. As the two struggle to survive for different reasons under stressful circumstances, an unlikely and touching friendship develops. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
