    • Synopsis
    • Candelaria, a teenager from the argentinian province Misiones, discovers one way of dealing with her authorative and widower father, Luis. By creating an imaginary character, Niña Perro, she manages to gather the strenght to face her father and achieve the ultimate goal: going to Buenos Aires with her best friend Victor.
      Once there, Candelaria finds herself facing contradictory feelings of anguish and nostalgia, leading to her ultimately leaving college to join a rock band.
      Little by little, she becomes detached from both Victor and her father, and ends up moving out behind the latters back, to Pablo's house, a member of the rock band.
      As time goes by, Niña Perro starts being more and more in control, making Candelaria's life a living hell. However there comes a point where Candelaria realises it's time to let go of teenager fantasies and carry on with her new life by facing up to Niña Perro and releasing herself from her power in a furious battle amidst a glamorous rock concert.
      Adolescence, parenthood, the search for independance, for one's own path, the difficulties of moving into a new city, and the world of our own characters and alter egoes, are the themes in this story
