Summary
  • "Alex is a 15-year-old teenager with a dark secret. Soon after her birth, her parents decide to leave Buenos Aires to settle in an isolated wooden house tucked away in the dunes of the Uruguayan shoreline. As Alex begins to explore her sexuality, her mother invites friends from Buenos Aires to come for a visit with their 16-year-old son Álvaro. Álvaro's father is a plastic surgeon who accepted the invitation because of his medical concern for Alex. The inevitable attraction between the teenagers forces both families to face their worst fears. As rumors begin to spread, the town's fascination with Alex becomes dangerous." -- Container
  • The Pick-up artist: "Olli only wants to have noncommittal sex, but that becomes difficult when he meets the 6-year-old daughter of his one-night-stand." -- Container
