A ten-year-old girl who wants to be an actress in a children's science fiction film, performing characters with electrical superpowers, travels at the speed of light through a post-apocalyptic world with several ghostly non-humans, getting lost along the way. In the process, they renegotiate alternative imaginings of globalization and freedom.

Shots made up of spinning, glowing, bright objects and light reflect the vertigo that comes from blind optimism and collective beliefs shaped by the fragmentation of identity. This weightlessness also as a metaphor for the challenge of finding identity that migrating bodies have to face.

In the linear world, the modernist bulwark of remedy, progress, and professionalism cracks. We become aware again that this world is porous, entangled, and in dynamic relationships with non-human entities.
