Two former lovers reunite after not having seen each other in ages. One is keen on making a porno while the other would like to go and see her family. They decide to go together and travel South Argentina in the company of a woman whom they’d met after a most unexpected night together. The polyamorous trio embarks on a journey through the stunning vistas of South Argentina. En route, they cross paths with other women; each with her own intimate story.
The Daughters of Fire is a journey packed with drama-free sex, love, feminism, life musings, relationships, and an exploration of what it means to be a woman in Argentina.
Director Albertina Carri tests the boundaries of film and pornography in this bold, shameless work. She celebrates the beauty of the female form and the Argentinian landscapes with unchecked, unbridled joy.
