With Sofía Paz Jara, Carolina Ramírez, Lina Marcela Sánchez, María Camila Mejía

A mesmeric journey of four half-sisters across Colombia blends the candor of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Our Little Sister with the sensuality of Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s Mustang to conjure up its own language.

Twelve-year-old Angela, loses the only parent she has ever known, her father, in a motorcycle accident. Among the mourners who come to Cali for the funeral are her three half-sisters, who know each other loosely but have never met Ángela. They are all in their late twenties, all three children of different mothers, and all harbor differently shaped impressions of their footloose father. Rather than let Angela be subsumed into the foster system, the women close ranks around their younger sister and drive the girl cross-country to their aunt’s house.

Angela will recognize in her stepsisters, femininity, sensuality, mysteries of pleasure, pain, the body, misfortune, and the challenge of being a woman in those lands.


Wandering Girl for all its flawless, fully embodied performances and insights into family and nature vs. nurture, has resonances beyond the story of four sisters united and divided by shared paternity. ” – Jessica Kiang, Variety

“Strong performances, exquisite visuals and a light dusting of gritty feminist attitude.” – Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

“A mesmeric journey that blends the candor of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Our Little Sister with the sensuality of Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s Mustang to conjure up its own language.” – Leonardo Goi, The Film Stage
