    • Synopsis
    • Alejandra is a free spirit who lives life as she wants. She lives with her mother in a small, comfortable apartment in Bogotá and spends most nights drinking or dancing with her close but complicated circle of friends, including her best friend Véronica and her sometime boyfriend Tomás.
      Alejandra expresses her playful independence and passion in these friendships, as well as in her sexual conquests with various men, without consequence. She embraces the routines and rituals in her life, as she makes her way through the world.Yet, Alejandra’s comfort is also where the complexity lies. Although the expectations her friends and her mother have of her define Alejandra’s life in many ways, the youthful intensity with which she connects to her surroundings gradually comes to a head.
      During a trip outside of the city with her friends, a seemingly innocuous game reveals that something has shifted in Alejandra, and that she remains on the brink of a greater spiritual and sexual consciousness about herself. In Alejandra, we see someone who is willing to walk in the dark alone.
