During that brief period between puberty and adolescence, Ale witnesses, along with her best friend Rubén, an equally brief phenomenon: the comet Velvet traversing Mexico City´s imposing skyline. Filming the celestial body shows us a glimpse of the fragility of Ale and Rubén’s friendship, their encounters growing increasingly sporadic and their meetings stranger, forcing our protagonist to face her own reality, be it through a screen or directly.
