Storyline

Madrid. 1928. 8 a.m. High heels, full skirts and clutch bags. The doors of the country’s only telephone company are opened to welcome hundreds of women workers who are the foundation of the company. They are young, pretty and modern. They are the ‘lady operators’. And the world is in their hands. Revolution has come in the shape of a telephone and these women are the very image of that revolution.

They have arrived from all over Spain to work in an impressive 13-storey skyscraper at the very center of Madrid. A place which represents progress and modernity, where jealousy, envy and betrayal get mixed up with a hunger for success, with friendship and love, but, above all, with dreams.

The Cable Girls is the story of a company and a place, La Compañía Telefónica Nacional (The National Telephone Company), the story of an era, the 1920s; but above all, it is the story of Lidia, Marga, Carlota and Ángeles.

They represent progress and project a modern image of women, those who are prepared to challenge established conventions and take control of their own lives. But there are many, varied challenges these women must face, which is why friendship and mutual support will be key for them to get ahead in the world in which they live. These four women represent four different ways of understanding the world and of facing its problems.
