    • Synopsis
    • The universe surrounding Wanda is conservative and traditional; her aunts stand for repression against the unknown. This is complemented by the curiosity aroused by Teresita, who stands for the forbidden and the exotic. In their encounters, they will discover Paul Delvaux’s paintings, listen to Billie Holiday’s vynil records (music forbidden to Wanda), and take their summer naps together. It is in this context where Wanda’s sexual initiation will take place, subtly directed by Teresita. The area encompassing the train station will be a recurrent place in Wanda’s dreams. Both Wanda and Teresita will go through this pictorial but hostile space in a ludic manner, unaware of the dangers awaiting them.
