Como toda adolescente, Danae (Berenice Jonguitud) está en busca de su propia identidad.
Aunque quiere mucho a familia, la opinión de sus nuevas amigas en una escuela privada
también la preocupa. Ahora que su fiesta de XV años se aproxima, Danae tendrá que luchar
para que la celebración refleje su personalidad y que al mismo tiempo cumpla el sueño de
su madre de verla en un hermoso vestido bailando en vals con sus chambelanes. La nueva
cinta del director Chava Cartas, quien previamente nos trajo la exitosa comedia “Mirreyes
contra Godínez,” nos demuestra a través del humor que esta tradición tan arraigada no
pierde su valor, aunque se adapte a tiempos modernos.(opens in a new tab)

Like every teenager, Danae (Berenice Jonguitud) is in search of her own identity. Although
she loves her family, she is also concerned with the opinions of his new friends at a private
school. Now that her quinceañera is approaching, Danae will have to fight for the
celebration to reflect her personality, while at the same time fulfilling her mother's dream
of seeing her in a beautiful dress dancing a waltz with her “chambelanes.” The new film by
director Chava Cartas, who previously delivered the hit comedy “Mirreyes Vs Godínez,”
uses humor to show us that this deep-rooted tradition does not lose its value, even if it
adapts to modern times.
