Christmas

Navidad (Chile, France)

Synopsis:

It is Christmas Eve in Santiago de Chile. Three teenagers with different problems at home end up spending the holiday together.

Alejandro is 17 and comes from a working class family. He is Aurora's boyfriend, an upper class 18 years old girl as beautiful as she is confused. That day, he decided to join her in the search of objects and mementoes from her dead father's house before it is occupied by the new owners. The crisis they are living as a couple explodes, but something unexpected occurs: they find an intruder in her father's house. A run-away and vulnerable girl, Alicia is only 16. During the process of taking care of her, they gradually find an exit to their own impasse.
