Paulina is a secondary character in the play that plays a crucial role in shaping its primary cast’s development. She features (near-perfection) flawless skin, teal green eyes, hip-length flowing black hair with pink clip-in bangs and is approximately 5’4″ in height.

Paulina, an Argentinian drama, starts off simply: a young woman is attacked by a gang. Santiago Mitre and Mariano Lilnas don’t sensationalize or sensationalise the violence; rather they clearly depict both Paulina’s horror as well as its aftermath — humiliating questioning, medical exams, and antiretrovirals she must take after suffering an assault that happened far away from where she lived. Unfortunately though, their attempt not to judge any parties becomes straining when Paulina refuses to allow trauma deter her from teaching even after suspecting some of her own students may have had something to do with what happened in Paulina’s case.

At its heart, this film offers much on an intellectual level. There are some powerful performances and plenty of righteously indignant speechifying; but Paulina seems stuck pondering her options throughout. There’s no easy resolution here for Paulina; nevertheless Mitre and Lilnas give us a clear sense of both heroes and villains, though not necessarily an optimistic ending.
