Having become a singer in a rock group, Max returns to her modest neighborhood of origin. Heavy memories await him there like the latest news and the truths silenced for years ...

A prolific filmmaker with an incomparable style, Julian Hernández returns to Chéries-Chéris with an explosive and unclassifiable work that sweeps away the codes of genre film. Inspired by real events, Asphalt Goddess offers a dive into 80s Mexico through the history of Las Castradoras de Santa Fe - Les Castratrices de Santa Fe - a street gang made up only of women and known to spread fear in the within the city. Combining the registers of gangster film, revenge movie, satire or even melodrama, this baroque aesthetic feature film addresses the themes of sexism, sexual violence, rivalry and friendship but also of solidarity between women and female empowerment. A powerful and resolutely feminist work!
