Sara, a tiny, lost girl from the suburbs, is a teenager who doesn’t comprehend the world she lives in. Only Líriko, a mysterious character who conveys enigmatic messages, seems to understand her. Her search will carry her to a secret place, to a life or death adventure that only a few survive. The long-awaited feature film coming-out of one of the most brilliant (and award-winning) Spanish short film directors, Verbo is a surprising movie where words rhyme to a hip-hop beat. Eduardo Chapero-Jackson finally debuts, and he does it with a film that’s destined to occupy a privileged place.
