In this way, the character played by Badgley recounts in voice-over that the woman had problems “last year“After carrying out a party when everyone was sanitizing their hands in their homes.
This would mean that during 2020, the year in which the Covid-19 pandemic that forced many countries to decree quarantine, Sherry violated the rules and was in contact with different people.
