¡Mais duro! Narrative short film

Set in late-90s Colombia, the curious and introverted Amalia unknowingly begins the universal experience toward self-awareness. Bored with her girlfriends and dying to know exactly what boys talk about, when girls aren’t around, she’s determined to have Carlos help her.
