Young person with wet hair, focused gaze, another person in background.



Love, rebellion, anxiety, frustration and psychological issues – in this Argentinian coming-of-age drama the protagonist must deal with them all. The film sensitively portrays life growing up alongside a family member with a mental illness.

Lola, aged 16, has the chance to go on a study trip to Germany and sees this as a way of escaping her unstable home environment: her sister has bipolar disorder. But her mentally and financially exhausted parents cannot afford it. So, longing for freedom, she sets out to find other ways of escaping her oppressive reality. This portrait of a teenager who refuses to give up her dreams is inspired by the director’s personal experience, and she set the film in the 1990s, which is when she grew up. She captures the atmosphere of that time just as perceptively as she portrays the subjective experience of the young protagonist.
