Pilar is an ordinary woman who has never questioned her routine. However, after her unexpected dismissal, she will live an identity crisis which will bring her to cling to the little she has left: her role as a mother of two teens who no longer need her. A Commonplace is the coming-of-age of a 50-year-old woman who, after a lifetime caring for others, asks herself: After all, who takes care of me?
