"One of the sharpest scripts in Argentinian cinema." - EscribiendoCine

Tania is a trans woman who performs at discos in Buenos Aires. When she receives the news that her grandmother has passed away, she returns to her hometown with her two friends to take care of the house she's inherited. But she finds out that an alien has accompanied her grandmother during her last years, keeping her company. The grandmother asks Tania to return the creature to the place where it appeared the first time. But when Tania begins to feel sick and the road gets tough, Tania and her friends will have to look inside themselves to overcome their fears and prove their true friendship so they can accomplish their mission before it is too late for the alien.

Director Santiago Loza will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film. Presented in collaboration with the International Writing Program.
