Alex is an intersex child who’s been raised as a girl, struggling with burgeoning sexuality and an unwanted secret in a gossipy Uruguayan fishing village. While Alex’s father Karark has always been at ease with his child’s uniqueness, her mother Suli furtively investigates other options by inviting a plastic surgeon to stay with them, in the hope of convincing Alex to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Events take a drastic turn, however, when Alex seduces the doctor’s son.

This acclaimed drama was Argentina’s nominee for Best Foreign Language Academy Award in 2008.
