Director, screenplay: Lucas Santa Ana, adapted from Zabo's novel.

2005. After the fire of a nightclub called the “Cromañón”, the nightlife and cultural life of Buenos Aires changes dramatically, especially for minors who are no longer welcome in the concerts of their favorite groups. In this context and after the suicide of one of his best friends, Zabo, a 16-year-old teenager, starts writing a blog. Unable to understand his death, Zabo expresses in his online diary a hectic year between illegal parties, beach vacations and romantic torments.

By adapting Zabo's excellent novel, the director wanted to capture the adolescent spirit of fifteen years ago in Argentina, by confronting the point of view of young people with what adults may think of them usually. Here, they are the ones who speak in the first person and tackle with finesse a multitude of sometimes taboo subjects: alcohol, sex, drugs, depression, suicide, love or even sexual discovery. Carried by an energetic and original staging, this bittersweet chronicle brings a fresh and fair look at adolescence.
