Driven by her feminist ideals and dreaming of using her law degree to change society, the young and brilliant black lawyer Simone is specialized in the defense of ill-treated, raped, abused, and discriminated women. In her private life, after ending a past as a cam girl to pay for her studies, she experiences new erotic practices, alone and with different partners, feeling more and more attracted by the BDSM universe and the connection between violence and eros. Combining the notion of decoloniality with the debate around gender and race, the third feature film of Brazilian director Julia Murat, winner of the Pardo d’oro at the latest Locarno Film Festival, will be premiered in Italy at the Fish&Chips Film Festival.
