63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

One of the most dramatic cases that shook the public life of Chile and held the nation in suspense for nine months, inspires a powerful melodrama demonstrating the way popular media affected the outcome of a violent story involving the children of powerful people. Blanca, an 18-year-old foster home resident, is the key witness in a scandal involving kids, politicians, and rich men taking part in sex parties. Yet, the more questions are asked, the less clear it becomes what Blanca’s role in the scandal exactly is. A story about the double life of a girl whose lack of opportunities and constant letdown by the very institutions which promised to protect her, pushed her to the limits. An inquiry about personal truth, deception, ethics, and the interpretation of truth.
