The search for a missing woman unspools in two unexpectedly interconnected parts in Laura Citarella's playful new feature.

The missing woman is Laura (Laura Paredes), a biologist cataloging plant species in and around the Argentinean city of Trenque Lauquen.

The men searching for her: Rafael, her boyfriend, and Ezequiel, a coworker who has come to mean more to her in recent days.

But in order to uncover the truth of Laura's disappearance, a profusion of mysteries must be explored. There's the question of love letters hidden in books in the local library, the discovery of a new species of flower, and then there's the mysterious being, rumored to be haunting the lake at the center of town.

From El Pampero Cine, the collective behind La Flor, comes a labyrinthine tale of obsessive pursuit and the quest for personal freedom.

The film is presented in two parts—part one runs 128 min and part two runs 134 min. Our Cornell Cinema screening will be presented with a 15-minute intermission.
