Synopsis

During the summer of 1990 in Chile, a small group of families live in an isolated community right below the Andes, building a new world away from urban excesses following the recent end of the dictatorship. In this time of change and reckoning, teenagers Sofía and Lucas, along with ten-year-old Clara, struggle with parents, first loves, and fears, as they prepare for a big New Year’s Eve party. They may live far from the dangers of the city, but not from those of mother nature. Director Dominga Sotomayor was awarded the prize for Best Director after her film’s premiere at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland last year.
