Tanya is a young trans woman who, following the death of her grandmother, embarks on an unorthodox journey with her two best friends, Pedro and Daniella. They arrive in a small town where Tanya’s grandmother lived, in a remote rural home. Much to her surprise, Tanya learns that her gran had spent her final years in the company of an oval-shaped alien with enormous dark eyes. Her grandmother’s dying wish was that Tanya take the alien back to the place where it first landed. The trio then set off on a trip across Argentina.
Brief Story from the Green Planet is a surprising piece about unconditional friendship; a film of few words but with much emotion, love, and an abundance of luminescent, neon-colored atmosphere. An original, quirky film about three extraordinary people, and one equally extraordinary extraterrestrial.
