    • Synopsis
    • Áyax Grandi he was an architect of the city of Rosario. At 48 he decided to become
      Canela. This film narrates the parenthesis in the life of Canela where she is torn
      between operate or allow herself to inhabit that intermediate place that might not be
      transit. Today, at 62, she is going through a moment of physiological decline, she is not
      andropause nor menopause, it is simply the awareness of her vital credit and the
      closeness of death. And it is this restlessness that makes her wonder if she wants to
      continue to be postponed in pursuit of others or if it is time to take charge of their
      desire. "Canela, you only live twice" is the path that the protagonist travels to reach
      the place that we all want to inhabit: the love of someone who accepts us as we are.
