Storyline

The young Marta has made a break in her medical education to fully invest in her career as a model. We follow her for a day in her life, almost completely without hearing her voice. It is seldom that Marta gets the space to speak, instead she is mostly subject to the voice of others. Voices that determine and give orders that object and shed judgmental comments, and she begins to feel more and more isolated. Written by filipsandstrom
