Chile 1990, at the end of Pinochet's dictatorship, a group of adolescents living in a commune, attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships while the adults prepare for the first New Year's Eve under the promise of democracy.
Shot in dreamily diaphanous, sun-splashed images and set to period-perfect pop, the film is a piercing portrait of youth and a country on the cusp of exhilarating and terrifying change.
“An intimate, human-focused film with broad allegorical potential.” —Little White Lies
“Mysterious and absorbing." —LA Times
