Paulina abandons her successful career as a lawyer in Buenos Aires to engage in social activism back in her homeland on the border between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. After two weeks working in a neighborhood scarred by marginalization, she is assaulted by a gang. Despite the brutality of the attack, instead of fleeing, Paulina resolves to hold tighter to her convictions – to survive, against the odds. PAULINA is a social thriller that explores the characters connected to an act of violence – the victims and the perpetrators – and examines how that violence triggers different ideas of justice.
