Media Folder: 

13-year-old Sara lives with her mother Paula, her mother’s partner Lia and her younger sister Catalina. The young girl takes cautious steps into the world from her female-dominated home, exploring boys, a new identity and freedom. Together with her best friend Pancha, she deals with the ups and downs of adolescence. Caught between a paranoid mother and a misunderstanding father who wants custody of his children, Sara tries to find her own way.

Director Pepa San Martin’s feature debut is an intimate portrait of a family in crisis, with respectful care for her characters. RARA is inspired by real events: in 2004 a Chilean judge lost custody of her children because of her sexual orientation.
