A forgotten singer rediscovers her sexuality – and a branch of the family. A very funny, lusty comedy from Chile.
In the 1990s, Martina was a star in Argentina, nowadays no-one recognizes her on the street any more. Alone, burnt-out and sexually frustrated, she awaits her 40th birthday. Her life takes an unexpected twist when Francisca rings her doorbell: an ardent fan who claims to be her sister. But what really gets Martina going is Francisca's boyfriend César. Without further ado, she follows the couple to Chile and has then to deal with both her libido and her new family.
