Born in a not-so-conventional family, Paola grows up between Ecuador and Colombia and finds herself unable to fit in any mold. With a unique feminine vision of the world, she will have to fight against prejudice and struggle for her independence while her universe is struck by a series of crises.

Adapted from the graphic novel “Virus Tropical” by Colombian-Ecuadorian artist Paola “Powerpaola” Gaviria, published in Colombia, Argentina, Chile, France, Spain and Belgium.

“Her dream of being a creative, independent woman triumphs over all temptation, offering a positive role model for the film’s youthful viewers” -Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
