Synopsis: It is 1984. Estela is going through the convoluted stage of adolescence. Sex, love, friendship and other things seems so complicated. Her uncle, Carlos is her hero, and the trip to California to visit him is her biggest dream. However, everything falls apart when he comes back to Brazil looking skinny, weak, and sick. Between crisis and discoveries, Estela has to face a reality that will change forever her way of seeing the world.
