Tania, a trans performer living in Buenos Aires, is going through her recently deceased grandmother’s belongings with two childhood friends when they uncover a sickly alien who had been abuela’s companion. The trio are now tasked with an unusual wayfaring mission to return the creature to its place of origin. Meanwhile, on a journey through the stunning countryside, unexplained powers emanate from the extraterrestrial, provoking the group to face their fears and align with their innermost being.
