Take me for a Ride

(UIO: Sácame a Pasear)

by Micaela Rueda

Ecuador/Mexico/Colombia 2016, 68 min.

How do you deal with being 'different‘?

Starting her senior year in high school, Sara doesn't have many friends and is caught between an overbearing mother, and a more understanding father. With uneasiness at school and tension in the household, Sara escapes to smoke in a little alley alone – that is – until Andrea, a new classmate, arrives. A close friendship develops to all that can see, but behind closed doors, an intimate relationship unfolds, which, when discovered, throws everything into disarray.
