Open Horizons

Paulina / Santiago Mitre

Paulina, 28, decides to abandon her brilliant law career in Buenos Aires and dedicate herself to social activism in the situated zone between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. This social thriller explores characters that are connected to an act of violence – as either victims or perpetrators – and examines the way in which violence leads to the creation of different ideas of justice.
