“…a potent, obliquely told coming-of-age movie that fuses pop culture, coma, teen sexuality and plant life into a dark, troubling whole…” — The Hollywood Reporter

Las Plantas

Florencia (17) must take care of her older brother, who is in a vegetative state, on her own for the first time. Trying to survive with limited means and no assistance, she’ll become obsessed with a comic called Las Plantas, which tells the story of the invasion of plant souls during a full moon. She will also start to explore her sexuality, meeting strangers via  the Internet.
