SYNOPSIS

It is New Year’s Eve. At the start of the nineties, and finally without Pinochet, Chileans start their year with even more hope-filled than the rest of the world. In the countryside, a group of families have formed a self-sustaining community. Parents are on a search for water and are debating whether to install electricity or not, while children, on vacation, are running free and are happy riding their bikes. Except for Ana, who bears an almost constant sadness for her lost dog, Frida. Amidst all of the kids, and at the height of her teen years is Sofía, who is going through her own impulses, urges and changes along with the situation and place she is living. She dreams of escaping to go live with her mother. But it’s not the idea of living in this unfettered community that is disconcerting to her: it’s herself, her first love, the changes she is experiencing, her body, her desires, the awakening of her sexuality. A chorus of voices and life that surrounds these main characters, this shared collective and community is a character in itself, masterfully portrayed by this film with an air of melancholy and uncertainty for a future that, for all, was about to be built.
