Since their parents split up, Sara and her younger sister have lived with their mother, whose new partner is a woman. Everyday life for the four of them is very similar to that of other families. Not everyone sees it that way, however; her father, in particular, has his doubts. As Sara’s 13th birthday approaches, she feels rather overwhelmed: she experiences her first crush, her body is starting to change and, to top it all off, she has conflicts over loyalty with her parents. San Martin’s feature film debut is inspired by the case of a Chilean judge who lost custody of her children for being a lesbian.
“Wonderfully light of touch, full of well-observed human detail and even-handedly compassionate, this richly human film is full of the quieter values and is topped off by an assured performance of great maturity by the young Julia Lubbert as the teen.”
