Breve historia del planeta verde - Synopsis

When Tania's grandmother passes away, the old woman legates her most precious asset to her granddaughter: an alien that she has hidden in her home for many years and now must return to her true home. Tania and her friends, Daniela and Pedro, travel from Buenos Aires to a small town in deep Argentina to meet the creature and thus fulfill the posthumous wish of the deceased. Despite the lack of resources, and discrimination by locals due to transphobia and homophobia, nothing stops their dangerous mission.
