Bea

A Film by Eduardo Lecuona

Synopsis

During a party in an opulent sea-side villa in Acapulco, Bea, an upper-class teenage girl, discovers that her boyfriend has been cheating on her. As the night carries on with excess and luxury, rumors say that a local working class protest is approaching the port city.
Within the moral decay of her friends and the threat of social chaos, Bea must decide if she wants to forgive her boyfriend or escape the toxic and harmful society that brought her up.
