Synopsis

The life of Víctor, a 30-year-old writer struggling with his novel, takes an unexpected turn when his live-in girlfriend Marcela announces her pregnancy at the 50th birthday celebration of her mother, Tikki. The expectant parents soon leave their hipster neighborhood for an apartment owned by Tikki in an upscale, suburban gated community. Unable to make progress with his novel and to embrace his role as a soon-to-be-father, Víctor spirals into a second adolescence when he meets Valentina, the bright, defiant 16-year-old who lives next door.

La vida de Víctor, un escritor de 30 años que no da pie con bola con su novela, toma un giro inesperado cuando su novia, Marcela, anuncia su embarazo en la celebración del cumpleaños número 50 de su madre, Tikki. Los futuros padres abandonan su vecindario “hipster” para mudarse a un apartamento propiedad de Tikki en una comunidad residencial exclusiva. Incapaz de progresar con su novela y de encarar su rol como futuro padre, Víctor pierde el control al conocer a Valentina, su coqueta y desafiante vecina de 16 años.
