Girl Of Her Age. A young woman in search of herself

Mariana is a young woman looking to fulfill the dream she was once committed with when she left her parents’ house to live with Alex, in Lisbon. 

When he leaves to New York, she cannot bear what has been left for her. Even though the return seemed unthinkable, she goes back to the North.

The burden of failure and the crossing of a legendary river, lead her to an ancient tale: once you cross the river of forgetfulness, your own past will also be forgotten.
