Following its successful premiere at SXSW, Sister & Sister is a sun-soaked coming-of-age film, directed by debut filmmaker Kattia G. Zúñiga, which offers an intimate and colourful portrayal of sisterhood and teenage life in the urban tropics.  

Summer vacation. Two sisters, Marina (17) and Luna (14), travel from Costa Rica to Panama to look for their absent father. While dealing with frictions that arise between them, they find space to explore their desires, new friendships, lovers, and skateboarding, on a journey toward emancipation where they discover the joy of the simple act of hanging out.
