A desperate love story between two young girls of extremely different social backgrounds. Lala, a teenager from the most exclusive suburban neighborhood in Buenos Aires is in love with the Guayi, the 20-year-old Paraguayan maid working at her place. They dream of living together in Paraguay, at the shores of lake Ypoá. Robbing every purse and wallet in the house, willing to do anything to fulfill their dream. But when they are ready to run away together everything bursts, fueled by desire, jealousy and rage. This is the starting point that spurs the escape through the highway that connects the North of Buenos Aires with Paraguay.

Presented at Berlinale 2009, section: Panorama Special.
