Synopsis

Set in a community of project houses, “One in a Thousand” explores deep friendship and sexual awakening. When Iris meets Renata, a young woman with a tough past, she feels immediately attracted to her. She will have to overcome her fears and struggle with her insecurities in order to experience first love. A story full of tenderness in a very hostile environment where desire adapts many forms in the darkness, and gossip can turn into a hostile weapon.
