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. Teddy Award winner for Best Feature at the Berlin International Film Festival, this poetic and moving film artfully crafts an unforgettable story that is visually gorgeous and touched by magical realism.
