Synopsis

To say that Paola’s family is rather unconventional would be an understatement. Her father is a former Catholic priest, her mother a clairvoyant and her sisters are both rational and rebellious. Raised in both Colombia and Ecuador, Paola, the youngest of the three, will struggle for her own independence in this quirky black and white film based on Colombian-Ecuadorian artist Paola “Powerpaola” Gaviria’s semi-autobiographical graphic novel.

Nos quedaríamos cortos al describir a la familia de Paola como poco convencional. Su padre es un ex sacerdote católico, su madre una clarividente y sus hermanas son racionales y rebeldes. Criada tanto en Colombia como en Ecuador, Paola, la más joven de las tres, luchará por su propia independencia en esta estrafalaria película en blanco y negro basada en la novela gráfica semi-autobiográfica de la artista colombiana Paola “”Powerpaola”” Gaviria.
