This captivating, award-winning debut celebrates the depth and beauty of queer sisterhood while struggling against conservatism in Brazil.
17-year-old volleyball player Sofia is on the cusp of being scouted for a Chilean scholarship, and is in a new relationship with teammate Bel. When she finds out she’s pregnant, she’s determined to terminate the pregnancy, but abortion is a crime in Brazil. Once the local community finds out, she becomes the target of fundamentalist groups out to stop her at any cost. A gripping film about women’s bodily autonomy and fighting back against inequality, it showcases the power of queer community in the face of adversity.
