How to project your destiny when you’re born without opportunities? Eight teenage girls who lived on the unforgiving streets of Bogota close their eyes and dream up a fictional classmate. Their soulful narrative reveals an amazing perseverance to break the cycle of violence and embrace the future.

This original documentary was one of the big hits at the last edition of the Berlin Film Festival, where it won two awards, including the much-coveted Teddy Award.
