The Fish Child Synopsis


Celebrated Argentine director Lucia Puenzo (XXY) returns with a gripping tale of forbidden lesbian romance and a crime heist gone awry that boasts beautiful cinematography and electrifying performances from its two female leads.


Lala, (Ines Efron) a teenager from the most exclusive suburban neighbourhood in Argentina, is in love with the Guayi, the 20-year-old Payaguayan maid working at her place. They hatch a plan to rob Lala’s family to fund their dream of living together in Paraguay, at the shores of lake Ypoá. While Lala waits to be reunited with her lover in Ypoá, the Guayi is detained in a minors institute in the outskirts of Buenos Aires for a crime she committed long ago. Desperate to be with her girlfriend, Lala hatches a dangerous rescue plan to get her back.

A beguiling hybrid of childhood fairytale, road movie, class clash and gangster fable, this stunningly filmed story from Argentina (and the director of the similarly ethereal XXY) slowly pulls you into the web spun by its two female protagonists, who are drawn to one another despite their circumstances. Sparkling performances make up for the plot's occasional swerves and holes. This really is a one of a kind movie.
