Since their parents split up, Sara and her younger sister live with their mother, whose new partner is a woman. Everyday life for the four of them is very similar to any other family. While the situation is perfectly fine with Sara, not everyone sees it the same way. Her father, in particular, has his doubts. As Sara’s 13th birthday approaches, however, things begin to feel overwhelming. Between her first crush, her body changing, and loyalty conflicts between her parents, suddenly everything feels wrong.
The feature debut from Chilean writer/director Pepa San Martín and recipient of the San Sebastian Film Festival's Horizontes Latinos Award, RARA premiered at the Berlinale, where it won the Generation Kplus International Jury Award and was hailed as “wonderfully light of touch, full of well-observed human detail and even-handedly compassionate” (The Hollywood Reporter).
