Tatiana Huezo / Feature Narrative / Mexico, Germany, Brazil, Qatar / 2020 / 102 min / Original Language: Spanish / Interests: Coming of age, Drama


In a mountain town, where corn and poppies grow, the girls sport boyish haircuts and have hiding places underground to escape the threat of being stolen. Ana and her two best friends grow up together, affirming the bonds of their friendship and discovering what it means to be a woman in a rural town marked by violence. Their mothers train them to flee death, to escape those who turn them into slaves or ghosts. They create their own impenetrable universe, but one day, one of the girls doesn’t make it to her hiding place in time.
