    • Synopsis
    • Memé (29) and Mariana (26) are best friends, one bisexual and one lesbian, who live in the city of Rosario. Apart from facing the typical conflicts of people their age, such as not being able to graduate, not getting a job they like or coping with romantic disappointments, along with their friend Sofía (24), they deal with the particularities of the local LGBT scene. Just after Memé breaks up with Martín, her long-lasting boyfriend, the neverending problem of not having enough places to meet girls gets suddenly worse: Mystika, the only LGBT club in town, is shut down. Deprived from their usual spot, the girls are forced to trying new and unknown ways of getting dates and finding community, always prioritizing their raging feminism.

      In a context in which every lesbian appears to be either “intense” or “player”, according to a theory Mariana and Memé invented, meeting girls is quite a challenge. That’s why Mariana decides to open her relationship with her girlfriend Ana and tries Tinder. Memé, frustrated by the the generalised biphobia in the lesbian community, and still dealing with her break-up, finds feminist activism and the fight for legal abortion to be her true passions.

      As Sofía jumps from one girl to the other, scaring them all away with her intensity, the three friends go through all kinds of adventures together while they continue their search for the perfect lesbian party: they organise a protest, help an old friend get an abortion, deal with their families, experiment the local women’s soccer league, and celebrate LGBT pride.

      Towards the end, Mariana learns a lesson when Ana leaves her for Camila, her own lover. Memé quits her waitressing job, graduates from college and becomes even more empowered in activism. Finally, the girls find a solution to their everlasting problem: they organise their own lesbian party, which becomes a huge hit in town.
