Synopsis: Rosina ticks away the days of a restless summer in her sleepy beachside town until she sights an ominous dorsal fin on one of her habitual ocean swims. Though many are unsure whether her encounter was real, rumors of sharks spread and unsettle the town. Unperturbed by the panic, Rosina shifts her focus to her summer job and her enigmatic coworker, Joselo, who ignites in her an odd, conflicted attraction she hasn’t quite reckoned with before. When his affections start to wane—and with the shark still circling in her thoughts—Rosina resolves not to be easily dismissed.

Directed by: Lucía Garibaldi.
