When Iris meets Renata in the projects of One Thousand in Argentina, she is immediately and inexplicably attracted to her. The new presence of Renata makes everyone uncomfortable, and prejudices grow. Iris will have to overcome her fears and struggle with her insecurities in order to experience first love. The two girls and their small group of friends are the queer resistance in a hostile environment where desire adapts many forms in the darkness, and gossip can turn into a hateful weapon.
