Dominga Sotomayor's intoxicating teenage daydream floats by in a haze of gorgeously gauzy images. Chile, 1990: in a remote artists' commune in the shadow of the Andes, a small band of families builds a new world far removed from the tumult of the city and the emerging freedoms that have come with the country's transition to democracy. It's in this time of change and reckoning that sixteen-year-old Sofia (Demian Hernández) confronts love, fear, and the dangerous unpredictability of nature. As the New Year approaches, Sofia begins to realize that you can't shut the real world out forever.
