(Tan de repente)

by Diego LERMAN

Corning from the countryside to Buenos Aires, Marcia, a solitary and strait-laced young shopgirl, now has a life bogged down in a stagnant routine. One day, she is followed in the street by Mao and Lenin, two lesbian punkettes, who provoke her with brutal frankness: Mao suggests they sleep together. Partly attracted, partly coerced, Marcia is drawn into conversation.” Love with no explanation can be proved, and the proof of love is worth as much as the feeling”, she is assured by the unpredictable Mao, who is already excited at the thought of deflowering the innocent young girl. To prove this love, they take her on a walk to the sea, which Marcia has never seen. This outing becomes a voyage of initiation whose conclusion is endlessly postponed by unexpected events. This increasingly strange journey finally cornes to an end at the house of Lenin’s aunt, where a couple of pensioners, Felipe and Delia, also live.

Between these six characters through a process of tentative reaching out and confrontation, the initial distrust is replaced, through an unexpected alchemy, by a relationship of complicity and tenderness. But to get the process started, the shock of death must first be faced…
