Argentine director Lucia Puenzo (“XXY”) delivers a gripping tale of forbidden lesbian romance with a crime heist gone wrong. Gifted Argentine actress Ines Efron stars as Lala, a teenager from the most exclusive suburban neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
Lala is in love with Ailin, her family’s Paraguayan maid (played by Argentine pop star turned actress, Mariela Vitale, aka Emme). The girls hatch a plan to rob Lala’s family to finance their dream of living together in Paraguay, at the shores of lake Ypoa.
While Lala waits to be reunited with her lover in Ypoá, Ailin is detained in the outskirts of Buenos Aires for a crime she did not commit. Desperate to be with her girlfriend, Lala hatches a dangerous rescue plan to get her back.
