Pelo Malo

Pelo Malo

Marta lives in a Caracas apartment building with her young son, Junior, and baby. Fired from her job as a security guard, she is desperate to get it back. Junior, meanwhile, is obsessed with straightening his curly hair, as his gaze starts lingering on a neighbourhood teenage boy. This unleashes a tidal wave of homophobic panic in Marta, which threatens to wreck the already tempestuous relationship between mother and son.
