Feature Film

»Daniela’s problem is a contemporary issue common amongst teenagers: anonymity. They blog vulgarly, vigorously hitting the keyboard whilst alone in their rooms, never to meet each other (except on occasion) – let alone have sex with each other.«
– Alix Diaconis

Daniela comes from an affluent and devoutly religious family. The rules of the Evangelical Church and the bans imposed by her parents govern her everyday routine. However, Daniel’s thoughts tend to revolve around sex and her need to develop at her own pace. She can only talk openly about these things in her blog where she writes unsparingly about everything that motivates her: everything!
And then, because she has slept with a boy, she is expelled from school and becomes in the eyes of her mother a living shame for the family. She uses disciplinary measures to force her daughter back on to the straight and narrow. For her part, Daniel has no intention of renouncing caresses or sex and starts a passionate affair with her girlfriend.
Marialy Riva embellishes her feature film debut with garish illustrations while experimenting with the structural characteristics of blogs.
