Nestled into a warm, supportive home shared with her mother Paula (Mariana Loyala), her mother's partner Lia (Agustina Munoz), and her younger sister Catalina (Emilia Ossandon), 13-year-old Sara (Julia Lubbert) takes her first cautious steps into the world of high school, boys, and independence. Alongside her best friend Pancha (Michaele Cristi), she deals with the ups and downs of adolescence as her unique home life is thrown into upheaval by her father's attempt to regain custody. Newcomer Julia Lubbert, in an assured performance, perfectly captures the awkward and often overwhelming realities of being a teenager and dealing with the rapidly changing world around you. Co-written by acclaimed author Alicia Scherson (Play), Pepa San Martin's debut feature is a fresh and surprising film that doesn't shy away from the truths of growing up in an unconventional family setting, without ever becoming a "lesson" film. Keenly observed and sensitively drawn, Rara is a movie for anyone who has fought to keep their head up in a world that just doesn't get it.
