About the film

Just before Cata’s 15th birthday, she’s getting more nervous by the day. Especially when her level-headed and reserved cousin from Sweden comes to visit. But Cata’s moodiness gradually gives way to tentative feelings of affection.


Included in a program of five short films that reflect on the challenges that Latin American girls and adolescents face in their transition to adulthood.
