SYNOPSIS

The choreographies of Sonia Sanoja, a pioneer of contemporary dance in Latin America, inspired this story. We follow an unusual ballet dancer in the afternoon when the worm-shaped curiosity itch guides her to a pipe with the sound of the ocean. On the other side, she will discover a new way to express her passion for dance and movement.
