BREVE HISTORIA DEL PLANETA VERDE (BRIEF HISTORY FROM THE GREEN PLANET)

Synopsis

Tania is a trans girl who makes shows at discos in Buenos Aires. Pedro is a young creature of the night , a voguing dancer. Daniela works in a bar as a waitress. She is dealing with a break-up and is in deep melancholia.

The three of them are friends. They went to school together in their home town. Tania receives the news that her grandmother has died, so she decides to go back to the town with her two friends. Her grandma has left her house as an inheritance, and hidden an Alien body that accompanied her in those last years. She asks them in a letter to please take the creature to the place where it appeared to give it eternal peace. Pedro, Daniela and Tania start a journey looking for that place. They look for clues and they meet along with people from the past and the present. They get lost, and found each other back. They find the appeasement they need, what makes their loneliness softer. At the end, they arrive to a mysterious place, where the Alien ship comes to look for the creature. Tania leaves with it, to the galaxy. Pedro and Daniela stay in Earth, closer than ever.

This story is told by a teenager, many years later. He returns to the town. We discover at the end of the movie that he is Daniela’s son. A young man returning to find the place where his life began.
