YAH19 Amalia, the Secretary

In this hilarious Colombian comedy, Amalia, a woman in her forties has unexpected feelings awakened in her by her building’s chaotic handyman.

Amalia is the secretary to the CEO of a family business going through hard times. Cranky but efficient, Amalia is convinced her simple life is enough. 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 deeply affects her. So much so that she will create a little chaos of her own to keep him around.
