Director: MARIANA RONDÓN
On the outskirts of Caracas, nine-year-old Junior lives with his unemployed mother Marta. Theirs is anything but a loving relationship: Marta is disturbed by her son’s obsession with his looks; Junior only wants to straighten his hair, which is frizzy and messy, so he can look like his pop idol. Junior’s affectations are intolerable to Marta, who is involved in a daily struggle for survival.
