★ 「迷人、引人入勝，充滿南美在地人文風景，令人眼睛一亮，難以抽離。」––The Hollywood Reporter ★ 「年度最棒的動畫電影！」–– Screen ★ 入選柏林影展、獲SXSW觀眾票選獎
改編自南美藝術家 Power Paola 的同名作品，她的文字作品以獨特的女性視角著稱，擅長在通俗的日常生活敘述中，融入諸如性、毒品、家庭衝突等嚴肅議題地探討。Paola用優雅、帶點自我嘲諷的口吻，訴說自己從青少女時期到成年的故事。她的誕生完全是一場偶然，母親害喜時，一位庸醫診斷她為感染瘟疫，而這個帶點荒謬的誤診，後來成為她整個成長過程最貼切的比喻。她成長於一個充滿強勢女性的家庭，母親、兩個姊妹、阿姨、姑姑和各種親戚，她們屢次遷徙，從厄瓜多搬到哥倫比亞，Paola 記憶中的青春期，是不斷努力融入新環境、結交新朋友，是不斷的失敗與重新開始。如同每一段自我追尋的命題，人們總能在其中看見自己的倒影。本片如同對南美中產階級的生活縮影，而她的優雅與沉鬱，更令人想起坎城評審團大獎作品【茉莉人生】。

"Charmingly authentic, fresh and engaging...offering a positive role model for the film’s youthful viewers" –– The Hollywood Reporter
"Animation at its loveliest" –– Screen
Festivals: Berlin, SXSW (Audience Award)
This beautifully animated film is adapted from the highly popular graphic novel of the same name by South American artist and writer Power Paola. Paola's work has won acclaim for its unique female perspective and the ability to apply an every-day realism to mature themes, including sex, drug use and painful family conflicts. With grace and self-irony, Paola recounts her own coming-of-age story from conception to the cusp of adulthood. She is born by accident –– at first the doctors diagnosed her mother with a tropical virus. The household she comes up in is a family of strong women, a mother, two sisters and various aunts and in-laws. They move between Ecaudor and Columbia, all the while struggling to fit in at new schools, make friends and find her own identity. Though the insight on South-American middle class life is unique and fascinating, the larger themes are relatable by anyone.
