Sofia Gala Castaglione (Alanis), Dante Della Paolera (Dante)
Alanis lives with her son Dante and an older co-worker in a comfortable apartment where she gets help with her baby while attending to clients. When two inspectors posing as clients break into their apartment, arresting Alanis' friend, Alanis finds herself on the street, destitute, without even a diaper for Dante. She seeks help from an aunt who offers her and Dante shelter despite disapproving of Alanis' line of work. But finding clients in the neighbourhood is dangerous, as the streets belong to very territorial Dominican workers.
