Mistress (Geliebte)

Scene from "Mistress" (photo © Paola Calvo Picado)

A lover realizes that the ritual she has with a seemingly unattainable man means more to her than the gratification of possessing him completely. She is his mistress. For more than ten years, his Wednesday afternoons have belonged to her. On this Wednesday everything seems as usual, but then a door opens and to step over its threshold might change her life.
