The year 1990 was when Chile transitioned to democracy, but all of that seems a world away for 16-year-old Sofia, who lives far off the grid in a mountain. The film takes place during the hot days between Christmas and New Year’s Day and interlaces the troubling realities of the adult world and the elemental forces of nature which intrudes Sofia’s teenage life.
