It's Paris, 1962. Wealthy stockbroker Jean-Louis lives a staid and bourgeois existence with his perfectly-presented socialite wife. But when the family's maid abandons them, into the residence comes Maria, who is young, hardworking and - quelle horreur! - Spanish. Forming a friendship with the other maids on the 6th floor, Maria soon sweeps the conservative Jean-Louis up into their wild and fun-loving world.
Remarkably it does not take long for the entire building to become enchanted with the new arrival; Maria rallies the friendships of the other servants on the sixth floor (played with warmth and vitality by two of Almodovars favourite senoritas, Carmel Maura and Lola Duenas) and soon Jean-Louise is swept up into the wild and fun-loving cross-cultural environment of life upstairs, much to the horror of his conservative wife, colleagues and friends.
