Offbeat black and white road movie by Argentinian director Diego Lerman. Marcia (Tatiana Saphir), a frumpy shop assistant in a Buenos Aires lingerie shop, is leading a lonely and directionless life, especially since her boyfriend recently dumped her. Her dreams of adventure and romance are answered in the unlikely guise of two lesbians calling themselves Lenin (Veronica Hassan) and Mao (Carla Crespo), who suddenly kidnap her when she is walking along the street one day. They hijack a taxi and take Marcia to the sea, which she has never seen before, and then to the boarding-house home of Lenin's eccentric Aunt Blanca (Beatriz Thibaudin), which she shares with two other women. As new and complex relationships develop between the women, Marcia's horizons are widened and she begins to learn about love and discover her own identity.
