In this delicate, melancholic romance, a young woman from Mexico City finds herself torn between her Jewish family and a forbidden love. Malka is training to compete in the national swimming finals when she meets a non-Jewish man, a radio station employee, who invites her to a concert. He shows her a world of possibilities beyond her sheltered life.
As their feelings deepen, she must weigh their forbidden relationship against rejection by her family and community, where religious values and traditions run deep. Bridging the divide between generations and cultures, writer-director Santiago Salinas' directorial debut deftly blends romantic comedy with an incisive feminist journey of discovery and self-determination.
