Alejandro and Aurora, two young students, leave Santiago and are on their way to spend Christmas with family in Aurora. The two teens are on the verge of collapse when they discover the presence of a young girl, Alicia, a sixteen-year-old fragile girl who has fled her home.
Before the success of Gloria and A Fantastic Woman, Sebastián Lelio presented his film Christmas in Cannes at the 2009 Directors’ Fortnight. A curious encounter leads to a strange love triangle in this mysterious, finely tuned drama, that slowly unravels within the darkness of an abandoned house.
