14 year old Luna and her 17 year old sister Marina use their summer vacation to travel from Panama to Costa Rica and track down their absent dad. They don’t always see eye to eye, in fact, they often have quite different ways of seeing the world and moving through it. As they deal with the sibling-centric frictions that arise, they also find space to explore their unique desires, new friendships, lovers, and skateboarding. While on the road to finding themselves and their freedom from longing for a father, they discover some of life’s simple joys: hanging out and making new connections, noticing the small things, seeing each other’s humanity. An intimate and tender tale of sisterhood in the urban tropics, and a rich portrayal of colourful teenage life.
