Few days are left until Cata’s 15 Birthday Party. She spends her time hanging out between dance moves, exacerbated teenagers, and an upsettingly tight dress.
Few days are left until her party when, suddenly, a weird liberal cousin arrives to her home.
In a world with no adults, few days are left until her big birthday party and Cata starts feeling everything she thought she was is loosing meaning.
